I complained to my doctor about my frequent respiratory infections. She asked if I swam in the Chesapeake Bay or if I ate seafood out of the Chesapeake Bay (I grew up and live in the area). She said that'll do it. I do neither, but when young I did quite a bit of it. Even 50 years ago my mom said the Bay was a sewer and wanted her hardheaded son to stay out of it. Only now do I appreciate that wisdom. To most of the world the waters are perceived as dumping grounds. Medical waste disposal is highly regulated while its in the hands of medical providers. Once disposed of don't be surprised to see it wash up on the Atlantic shores.
