The Baby harbour porpoise in the uk are being poisoned by what is referred to as a “cocktail of chemicals” coming from contaminants in the milk of their mother.

The researchers found that the chemicals, which are polychlorinated biphenyls (Pcb’s), which can be passed on from a mother to their calves. However, the longer they stay in the mothers body, the more toxic they are to each of their offspring, the researchers noted.

“It is a tragic irony that a young porpoise may be exposed to a toxic cocktail of chemicals in the food at all of what they are supposed to be in order to get the essential nutrients they need for the major development stage of their lives,” the study’s lead author, Rosie Williams, said in a statement.

According to the BBC), polychlorinated biphenyls (Pcbs) were used in the plastics, coatings and paints, and have long since been banned, but remnants of them still exist.

Pcbs have also been discovered in whales and dolphins, the BBC added, referring to a recent study, noted that the dolphins in the English Channel and were exposed to a cocktail of noxious chemicals.’

“Previously, scientists have tended to confirm the PCB level by grouping them together and treating them as a chemical, but, as we all know, they are a group of chemicals with varying toxicity levels, so it was a bit like trying to measure how much caffeine you had, without knowing it, or she drank three cans of red bull, or three cups of tea,” Williams added. “Our study has highlighted the need to change our approach to the monitoring of Pcbs, in order to look at the composition of the individual chemical substances, which means that we are able to have a better understanding of the risks of these chemicals to our marine flora and fauna.”

In 2018, there are traces of cocaine and illegal pesticides have been found in the fresh-water shrimp to over 15 different venues in Suffolk, England.


Williams said that the study of PCB exposure in the species abundance of populations, and can help you with the help of the countries in which the population drops, including a killer whale, in which there are only eight that are still in the U. k.

“As top predators, killer whales may have been exposed to some of the highest levels of Pcb’s, it is because there is a cumulative effect of a Pcb-if you are in the food supply chain,” Williams added. “It is clear that the marine mammals are still the lingering effects of the Pcbs, therefore, is to identify the sources and pathways for them to enter in to our oceans is a vital next step towards the prevention of further contamination.”

One of the study’s co-authors, Susan Jobling, said that the study allows scientists to better understand how a typical printed circuit boards are and how they impact on the environment and the wildlife in the area.

“This research will help our understanding of these industrial chemicals, and the effects of different levels of exposure to complex mixtures, it can have it,” Jobling said. “In order to learn more about PCB exposure in young animals, it is of vital importance, so that we can try to mitigate the impact of hazardous chemicals on the population, and help to protect the future status of marine mammals in uk waters.”

The study has been published in the scientific journal Science of the Total Environment.
