Removing Arsenic from Groundwater by Eating It.

by Adrian Page 18. February 2010 09:09

'The Devil’s Water' Continued –

‘Consuming the Arsenic’

High levels of arsenic continue to be found contaminating the groundwater of many regions of the world and for hundreds of millions of people this is the water they have to rely on for their drinking water supply.

Arsenic is one of the world’s most deadly killers.

It may take years to manifest and lead to a slow painful death.

With so many people at risk of arsenic poisoning, arsenicosis, it is imperative to find a remedy to mitigate arsenic from the groundwater.

A lot of filtration systems have been and are being tried and tested, many of which rely on chemicals to remove the arsenic.

But one born and bred Australian has taken a different approach – ‘Consuming the Arsenic’.

---------------------------------

‘Consuming the Arsenic’ can also be linked with ‘The Devil’s Water’ audio – the ‘biggest mass poisoning of humans ever known’ due to one of the world’s most deadly killers - arsenic.

Listen to the ‘Audio’ extract here.

It is a massive story and one which ‘The Devil’s Water’ covers very much in depth.

Programme input can include;

Scientists, doctors, NGO’s, in the field locations.

---------------------------

‘The Devils’ Water’ is available in ‘Audio’ ‘Text’ and for ‘Photography’ please refer to ‘Reportage’ category.

-----------------------------

The following ‘Audio’ is an extract of an extremely interesting interview with a lecturer in Environmental Microbiology at one of the UK’s leading universities. This lady is working not only on a safe, reliable and cost affective method of mitigating the arsenic, but also an environmentally friendly one.

A full version of ‘Consuming the Arsenic’ is available on request.

Ganga (Ganges) River Dolphins Help Gauge The Sign Of A Healthy River System.

by Adrian Page 5. November 2009 09:13

‘A Goddess – The Ganga’

The River Ganga’s (Ganges) religious significance makes it unique amongst all the world’s major river systems.

It is revered by hundreds of millions of people in India and around the world who regard the Ganga as a ‘Goddess’. It is considered a symbol of ‘cleanliness and purity’.

But is the Ganga so clean and pure – this feature investigates.

It will reveal the impact that hundreds of millions of people whose livelihoods depend on the Ganga is having on the river system.

Covering the course of this mighty river from high in the Himalayas at Gaumukh before it traverses Northern India to the where the ‘Mouths of the Ganga’ enter the Bay of Bengal.  

It also looks at wildlife and in particular India’s earliest protected species, the Ganga (Ganges) River Dolphin which are said to be the flagship of a healthy river. These have declined to an alarming level and are now listed as ‘highly endangered’ by the IUCN.

The Ganga’s religious significance is also an aspect included in this investigation.

What this river means to so many millions of people in India and around the world, and the consequences this is having on the ‘Goddess Ganga’.

Affects from ingesting too much Fluoride

by Adrian Page 23. October 2009 08:58

‘Fluorosis an Agonising Death’

 

 The following audio is an outline of a subject which is available in ‘Audio’ and ‘Text’ regards fluoride and the effects too much can have on the human body. Fluoride is promoted in some countries around the world as being beneficial to human health.

But could this be a misconception.

Worldwide millions of people are suffering from fluorosis. This is a crippling, agonising disease that can occur in early childhood and continue into old age.

In the developed world in particular fluorosis could be being misdiagnosed for other ailments.

Fluorosis is a disease that occurs as a result of consuming too much ‘of a good thing’ – fluoride. This is usually from drinking groundwater that contains high levels of fluoride, but by no means is it the only way.

Fluoride can be ingested from a variety of sources and can affect most parts of the human body including bones as well as the soft tissues.

This audio extract is part of an interview with an eminent professor who has been studying the affects fluoride has on the human body for many years.

Decline in Vultures leads to increase in Rabies.

by Adrian Page 14. October 2009 08:57

‘From Vultures to Street Dogs’

The ‘most rapid decline of any species on the planet’ has given rise to cause for concern for human health and welfare in India. A country with a population of over one billion people.

Fifteen years ago tens of millions of vultures could be seen riding the thermals across the skies of the Indian Sub-continent.

Their vast numbers coincided with an abundance of food available, particularly livestock. It would take raptors just minutes to strip a carcass clean to the bones.

Today these same skies are almost devoid of vultures, their numbers having plummeted and today these majestic birds are now on the verge of extinction.

The vulture’s demise has been found to be due to the use of a veterinary drug used for treating livestock.

With no competition from vultures and an abundance of food street dog numbers have increased dramatically just as have the number of cases of rabies.

This neglected disease is said to contribute to more deaths worldwide than other infectious diseases such as Dengue Fever, Japanese Encephalitis or Polio.

It now seems that several other species could be following these vultures demise and that the continent of Africa might not be spared.

'From Vultures to Street Dogs’ is an excellent example as to how important conservation is especially in regards to human health and wellbeing.

The following audio is an outline of ‘From Vultures to Street Dogs’.

Programme input can include; Government and involved NGO’s. In the field locations.

This audio extract commences with an interview with the International Species Recovery Officer regarding the decline of these vultures. This is followed by another interview with the Head of the Vulture Advocacy Programme to learn some more about what has been occurring. Finally it is a walk around the Vulture Conservation and Breeding Centre with the Principle Scientist.

Arsenic Contaminated Groundwater - 'The Devil's Water'

by Adrian Page 8. October 2009 05:43

‘The Devil’s Water’

‘The biggest mass poisoning of humans’ due to arsenic poisoning.

This investigation covers what many consider to be ‘the worst environmental health disaster ever known’ which continues to grow.

Its epicentre is located in parts of Northern India and Bangladesh.

Not only are these some of the most densely populated regions of the world they are also some of the most impoverished.

Here approximately 500 million people are at risk of arsenic poisoning from drinking high levels of this tasteless killer arsenic that is contaminating the aquifers people rely upon for their ‘safe’ drinking water supply.

More and more locations are being found to have groundwater containing high levels of arsenic, not just on the Sub-Continent, but also in other countries especially throughout Asia.

Whilst the scientific community continues to try and understand what is occurring geologically, medical science grapples with diagnosis and treatment of Arsenicosis. A disease that takes many years to manifest and can lead to a lingering painful death as many have and are experiencing.

Now there is cause for concern with evidence emerging that the threat from arsenic poisoning is not just confined to drinking contaminated groundwater, but also from eating certain food products particularly rice.

------------------------------

The following audio is an outline of ‘The Devil’s Water’ – the ‘biggest mass poisoning of humans ever known’ due to one of the world’s most deadly killers - arsenic.

It is a massive story and one which ‘The Devil’s Water’ covers very much in depth.
