mother talked about a cousin that disappeared off his boat in the Ocean prior to WWII. Very mysterious, boat had all supplies, he had no personal problems, and no sign of violence on the boat. The only clue he told a friend he saw something he should not have seen near the docks!

Think back to the 70’s, before environmentalism and concern for it became a trend. The amount of crap being dumped into it was staggering.

For thousands of years the ocean was only polluted by all the millions of cadavers dumped in it after the wars between nation of the long past, but 20th century arrived with multiple inventions that in a short period of time has caused so much destruction on that body of water. The consequences of our pollution to the ocean can be very well be a major force of accelerating the warming of the planet.

And let’s not forget the earth we have under our feet. The uncontested murder of horned omnivores has become a threat to all of us, not to mention the polar regions of our world. The sea is our last frontier and I cannot think about the future if we allow it to be destroyed too

All of these facts are very interesting but the "Trash", mainly plastics that are in our oceans makes me physically sick. Humans have done nothing but kill, maim and poison almost everything on our earth and as far as I'm concerned they do hardly anything to the ones that do the damage.

The trash poisoning the ocean is very of great concern to me. Humanity the ultimate destroyer of our beautiful planet home.

I don’t believe it, the salt is actually healing but as a kid I did wave jumping and got sucked in but by a miracle after rolling about I got dumped on the shore.Criona Walsh,

Juniperbrenda, At one time I swam in the Indian Ocean at least once a week, also went snorkeling and spear fishing (provided some delicious fresh fish meals). I had an ear infection once, probably depends on where you swim.
