Mercurio nei pesci 7 volte in più: è colpa del cambiamento climatico

di AnnaMaria 37

Secondo lo studio di ricercatori svedesi e americani pubblicato sulla rivista Science Advances, i livelli di mercurio presenti nei pesci che mangiamo si potrebbero alzare fino a sette volte in più. La causa sarebbe l’aumento delle temperatura causato di cambiamenti climatici. Infatti dall’inizio dell’era industriale la presenza del mercurio nell’ecosistema è cresciuta, secondo gli esperti, dal 200% al 500% soprattutto a causa dell’uso dei carburanti fossili, ma adesso l’aumento delle temperature e ul conseguente aumento delle precipitazioni potrebbero aumentare la presenza del mercurio nei pesci fino ad un ulteriore 300-600%, appunto sette volte in più rispetto ai livelli attuali.

> Pesce contaminato da mercurio, una minaccia che si estende a macchia d’olio

Ricordiamo che il mercurio è l’unico metallo liquido a temperatura ambiente ed è anche uno dei più tossici per l’uomo. Ed è per questo che l’OMS lo ha inserito tra le 10 minacce più gravi alla salute, perchè può provocare danni al sistema nervoso, ai polmoni, alla pelle, agli occhi, al sistema digestivo e immunitario. La più comune forma di esposizione dell’uomo al mercurio è appunto attraverso i pesci contaminati che mangia ed è anche per questo che l’aumento della presenza del mercurio nell’ecosistema preoccupa così tanto i ricercatori.

Come spiega la ricercatrice Jeffra Schaefer, l’aumento delle precipitazioni causerà un aumento del deflusso delle acque nei mari, con un conseguente aumento del rilascio di mercurio negli ecosistemi costieri, che sono i principali luoghi di sostentamento, quelli da cui più si ricavano i pesci che poi la gente mangia.

La situazione sarebbe abbastanza allarmante e i ricercatori sperano che la convenzione di “Minamata”, per contenere la minaccia del mercurio firmata nel 2013 da 139 paesi, abbia successo.

  2. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  16. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  20. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
