UK Shrimps Test Positive for Cocaine and Ketamine!

A study of water quality in the UK has delivered some alarming findings. The study, by Kings College London and the University of Suffolk found evidence of freshwater shrimps that tested positive for cocaine, when testing rivers for chemicals.

These extraordinary findings were the result of researchers testing 15 river locations across Suffolk.

Cocaine was found in all samples of the shrimps that were tested. Other drugs present included ketamine, which was also found to be a cause of widespread contamination in the crustaceans.

The discovery was a big surprise for the researchers, considering that the rivers tested were in rural locations and not in big cities such as London.

Further research is now needed to determine if the drugs phenomena demonstrated in Suffolk is a widespread problem throughout the UK.

Researchers certainly felt that invisible chemical pollution such as this was a major problem that needed to be considered for the wider health of the UK population.

The study has been published in a journal called European International. Banned pesticides and pharmaceuticals also were found to be present. In the samples taken from rivers such as the Alde and Gipping.

It was thought unlikely that the creatures would have been affected by any of the drugs or pollutants.
