In the twentieth century, the level of mercury contamination in the ocean has increased two times more than in the twenty-first century. It is caused, first of all, waste of heavy industry. The study showed high risk consumption of contaminated coastal waters. For two years she was a lot of work, which involved seventy biologists and chemists.
The study found mercury, which falls into the ocean, can turn into highly toxic methyl mercury.
Methyl mercury is very dangerous for people who eat seafood. The work done is very crucial, because in January two thousand will be the thirteenth year of the global conference, which will be monitored by the release of mercury to the atmosphere.
Scientists have found that most are suffering from mercury swordfish and tuna, as they get most of the toxic metal. The danger is that the fish most of the people of the United States eat.
The scientists concluded that the work done, it is the following: it is necessary to strictly control industrial plants, which are a major source of environmental pollution. Also, scientists have concluded that if the reduced emissions of mercury to the environment, the World Ocean will continue to recover, and will not need to conduct additional research and monitoring, and people will be able to eat seafood in large quantities at the same time there will be no health risk .
