Still don't have the hang of how to start messages.
Here is my question. Does anyone have any guidelines for coping with symptoms of Red Tide bacteria Karenia brevis?
In FL we are in a state of emergency because of this. Sharks, dolphin and all marine life are washing up on our shores. They say this is a natural occurence but many suspect it is so severe due to the release of toxic water in Lake Occechobee. This causes respiratory irritation headaches, nausea, neurological problems. It is in the water but becomes airborne due to wave action. Causes range from cattle waste, sugar cane corp. toxic waste, golf couse toxins, fertilizers, pesticides etc. Even Disney has been blamed. As you might imagine it is a politically charged issue which greatly confuses the issue.
Be that as it may some have warned that this can be very harmful for those with liver disease to the point that it could cause immediate liver failure. I live 1/2 mile from what should be one of the countries most pristine beaches. They report it can travel 4 miles inland. I only go out of the house for necessary reasons. I also have asthma which adds to my discomfort. I have a headache that will not go away, nausea, itchy eyes, nausea and general malaise.
Going to my family Dr tomorrow. Is anyone familiar with this? Does anyone know of a resource to learn more about it concerning liver disease.
It is very sad…and I am concerned about the long term effects.
This may only be a FL issue.
On a side note…we have Erin Brochovich involved. You may remember the movie…
