  • Link found between ‘algal blooms’ and liver disease

    Cyanobacteria — often referred to as blue-green algae — are found in water bodies around the world and can produce toxins with potential health risks. This US-wide study found a significant positive association between cyanobacterial bloom coverage and death by non-alcoholic liver disease. The researchers say their study suggests some evidence of a potential health risk and should be ...

  • How much phosphorus pollution makes lakes unsafe for recreation?

    A target level of 20 micrograms of phosphorus per litre of lake water could help keep many lakes safe for recreation by restricting the growth of harmful algal blooms, European research suggests. The scientists analysed the relationship between phosphorus levels in medium- and high-alkalinity lakes, the growth of cyanobacteria blooms and the concentrations of cyanobacteria that trigger World ...

  • Plants provide ‘green liver’ by removing water toxins

    Blue-green algae, or ‘aquatic cyanobacteria’, can produce harmful toxins and present a serious health hazard when they bloom in large numbers. Researchers from Germany have now identified plant species that could be used to sustainably treat water by removing such cyanobacterial toxins. Cyanobacteria are common in water bodies with high nutrient load. Some cyanobacteria can ...

  • Taste and odour events linked with Cyanobacteria

    A study documents a correlation between cyanobacteria levels in source water and taste and odour events in drinking water. An outcome is that the level of blue-green algae affected the concentration of 2-methylisoborneol (MIB), the compound frequently associated with taste and odour events, and concluded that these events may be averted or minimised by monitoring reservoirs, lakes, rivers and ...
