Zaj dab neeg tseem ceeb

Kev txhawj xeeb loj hlob txog cov tshuaj hormones cuam tshuam rau hauv Wisconsin dej Lub xeev poob qab Minnesota hauv kev sim nws cov pas dej thiab cov dej ntws.

Dej Saib Wisconsin

Cov dab neeg no tau tshaj tawm txoj haujlwm tshiab loj, Water Watch Wisconsin. Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, Wisconsin Public Radio thiab Wisconsin Public TV tab tom tshuaj xyuas Wisconsin cov dej kom zoo. Dab neeg tswv yim? Email water@wisconsinwatch.org.

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources thiab Department of Health Services ceeb toom rau cov neeg nyob txwv tsis pub lawv noj ntses qus kom tsis txhob muaj teeb meem kev noj qab haus huv los ntawm cov tshuaj lom neeg, xws li ntau lub xeev.

Cov teeb meem no suav nrog ntau yam teebmeem kev noj qab haus huv, tab sis plaub pawg tshuaj uas ua rau muaj kev tawm tswv yim txog kev noj haus - PCBs, mercury, dioxins thiab PFOS (perfluorooctane sulfate) - tau cuam tshuam nrog endocrine cuam tshuam, DNR toxicologist Candy Schrank tau lees paub.

Cov ntses feem ntau muaj tsawg kawg yog cov mercury tsawg, thaum lwm yam peb cov tshuaj muaj kev txhawj xeeb tshaj plaws ntawm cov chaw tshwj xeeb.

Tshuaj rau txim

Mercury: Ib qho khoom siv ntuj tsim uas tau txav thiab tawm mus rau hauv huab cua los ntawm kev sib xyaw thiab lwm yam dej num. Mercury tau pom tias muaj kev cuam tshuam rau kev xav, kev nco, kev mloog, lus, kev txawj tsav tsheb zoo thiab kev txawj ntse ntawm cov menyuam yaus pom hauv plab. Nws tuaj yeem txo qis fertility nyob rau hauv tib neeg thiab muaj lwm yam kev ua me nyuam, thiab muaj feem xyuam nrog cov paj hlwb cuam tshuam rau cov neeg laus. Cov neeg feem coob muaj cov ntshav mercury hauv qab no uas cuam tshuam nrog kev noj qab haus huv.

PCBs: Ib pawg ntawm cov tshuaj chlorinated tsis tu ncua uas tsim nyob rau hauv lub cev ntau xyoo. Cov kws tshawb fawb pom kev loj hlob tsis zoo thiab kev paub tsis txaus ntseeg hauv cov me nyuam ntawm Michigan cov niam uas noj cov ntses nruab nrab mus rau siab ntau ua ntej thiab thaum cev xeeb tub. Thaum muaj hnub nyoog 11 xyoos, cov menyuam no muaj peb zaug ntau dua yuav muaj cov qhab nia IQ qis, ob zaug zoo li yuav poob qis dua ob xyoos hauv kev nyeem ntawv nkag siab, thiab muaj kev nyuaj siab dua. Cov tshuaj hormones tuaj yeem yog lub luag haujlwm rau cov teebmeem no, txawm tias lawv feem ntau tsis xav txog qhov cuam tshuam txog endocrine. PCB kev noj qab haus huv cuam tshuam txog kev txhawj xeeb rau cov neeg laus muaj xws li ntshav qab zib thiab thyroid kab mob, ob qho tib si muaj feem cuam tshuam txog endocrine.

EPA: Feem ntau cov tib neeg muaj cov qib dioxin uas "tsis xis nyob ze rau qib uas tuaj yeem ua rau muaj kev cuam tshuam tsis zoo uas tsis yog mob qog noj ntshav."

Dioxins: Ib tsev neeg ntawm cov tshuaj lom neeg uas yog byproducts los ntawm combustion thiab industrial chemical processes. Lub xeev qhia kom tsis txhob noj ntses thaum kuaj ntau tshaj 10 feem ntawm ib trillion; qhov no txhais tau tias tsis muaj carp lossis catfish loj los ntawm Wisconsin River. Cov neeg feem coob muaj cov tshuaj dioxins kuaj pom nyob rau theem uas "yuav ua rau muaj kev pheej hmoo ntawm mob qog noj ntshav thiab tsis xis nyob ze rau qib uas tuaj yeem ua rau muaj kev cuam tshuam tsis zoo uas tsis yog mob qog noj ntshav," US Environmental Protection Agency hais. Cov teebmeem uas tsis yog mob qog noj ntshav muaj xws li kev hloov pauv hauv cov tshuaj hormones, hloov pauv fetal kev loj hlob, txo qis fertility, thiab tsis kam tiv thaiv kab mob. Triclosan, ib qho khoom siv tes soap, tau pom tias tawg ua dioxins.

PFOS: Ib qho ntawm ntau cov tshuaj perfluorinated ua rau cov hluav taws kub hnyiab, ntawv, tshuaj tua kab, tshuaj ntxuav, textiles thiab lwm yam kev lag luam siv. PFOS tau pom tias cuam tshuam rau cov kab mob neuroendocrine thiab ua rau cov qog nqaij hlav hauv nas lub siab; Cov kev tshawb fawb nas kuj tau ua rau muaj kev txhawj xeeb txog kev loj hlob thiab kev loj hlob. Tib neeg txoj kev tshawb fawb tau txwv, txawm li cas los xij.

Cov lus qhia txog kev noj ntses ua haujlwm li cas

DNR tuaj yeem kuaj ntses rau cov tshuaj uas nws xav tias muaj nyob thiab yuav tsim nyob rau hauv cov ntses. Lub koom haum ua haujlwm nrog Lub Tsev Haujlwm Saib Xyuas Kev Noj Qab Haus Huv toxicologists los tshuaj xyuas seb cov tshuaj puas tshwm sim ua rau muaj kev pheej hmoo rau tib neeg lossis tsiaj qus. Lub chaw haujlwm tseem ua haujlwm nrog EPA's Great Lakes Fish Monitoring thiab Surveillance Program txhawm rau tshuaj xyuas cov ntses rau cov tshuaj uas muaj kev txhawj xeeb, xws li cov nplaim hluav taws kub hnyiab hu ua PBDEs uas tej zaum yuav cuam tshuam rau endocrine.

  1. Nco ntsoov: Wisconsin DNR ib txwm tsis txaus siab tshaj tawm cov lus qhia txog kev noj ntses uas muaj zog npaum li lawv yuav tsum tau ua. Kev muag daim ntawv tso cai nuv ntses yog ib qho tseem ceeb ntawm lawv cov nyiaj, yog li cov neeg ua haujlwm DNR ntshai tsam ua rau lawv tus kheej muaj kev phom sij los ntawm kev ntshai tib neeg kom deb ntawm kev nuv ntses.

    Kuv nco qab ntau zaus ntau xyoo thaum cov neeg nyob ib puag ncig hauv zej zog zoo li kuv yuav tsum tau thawb HARD ntawm DNR tsuas yog kom lawv luam tawm cov ntawv luam kom txaus kom haum rau cov neeg nuv ntses uas muaj ntawv tso cai nyob hauv peb cheeb tsam, tab sis txawm tias deb ntawm kev lees paub tias cov neeg nuv ntses tiag tiag SAW ib qho ntawm cov ntawv luam no. Kev faib tawm ntawm cov lus qhia tau pom qhov zoo tshaj plaws thiab tsis tuaj yeem lees paub.

    Tau ntau xyoo, peb tau thawb cov lus ceeb toom kom luam tawm hauv phau ntawv kev cai nuv ntses uas txhua tus tuav daim ntawv tso cai tau txais txhua xyoo, kom paub tseeb tias txhua tus tau txais ... tab sis DNR tsis kam. (Puas muaj leej twg paub tias Scott Walker's DNR ua dab tsi tam sim no? Cov khoom no ib txwm yuav tsum tau saib xyuas…)

    Txawm hais tias cov neeg nuv ntses tau txais kev tawm tswv yim, lawv tsis paub tias cov lus ceeb toom tsis muaj zog npaum li cas. Anglers tsis tau txais tag nrho zaj dab neeg lossis TRUE ceeb toom kev pheej hmoo.

    DNR tsis yog tib qho xwb, lossis txawm tias qhov loj tshaj, cuam tshuam rau kev paub txog pej xeem. Kev tshaj tawm txog kev pheej hmoo ntawm kev noj qab haus huv los ntawm kev noj ntses kuj tseem raug cuam tshuam los ntawm kev lag luam kev lag luam, kev lag luam nuv ntses, kev lag luam nuv ntses, marinas, khw muag khoom noj khoom haus, khw muag khoom, khw muag khoom noj, khw noj mov, tsev so, tsoomfwv hauv nroog, cov dej khib nyiab pov tseg hauv nroog, cov neeg ua qias tuaj, thiab lwm yam kev lag luam uas muaj feem cuam tshuam txog nyiaj txiag hauv "kev nuv ntses zoo."

    Cov neeg raug xaiv tsa ntawm ob tog kuj tau ua phem rau (thiab tej zaum yuav ceeb toom tawm tsam) ua qhov teeb meem ntawm kev kis tus ntses.

    Lub tsev kho mob yeej tsis hais dab tsi ib qho twg ... yog li ntawd tso ob peb tus neeg nyob ib puag ncig uas muaj kev sib cais raws li qhov tsuas yog cov neeg tawm tswv yim tawm tswv yim rau pej xeem kev paub txog txhua yam kev pheej hmoo kev noj qab haus huv.

    Tab sis leej twg mloog ib puag ncig?

    Cov nyiaj tau txais txiaj ntsig zoo thiab ua tib zoo saib xyuas kev tshaj tawm xov xwm tsis zoo ntawm cov tuam txhab tau ua pov thawj rau cov neeg nyob ib puag ncig rau ntau xyoo lawm, yog li tam sim no txawm tias cov neeg nyob ib puag ncig feem ntau tsis kam hu ua "environmentalists" lossis pom koom nrog "wacko extremists."

    Yog li leej twg tau tso tseg ceeb toom rau pej xeem?

  2. BTW - Kev txhawj xeeb txog cov nplaim hluav taws tsis yog qhov kev txhawj xeeb "tawm tshiab" xwb.

    PBDE'a tau yog ib qho kev txhawj xeeb loj hauv ntau qhov kev tshawb fawb, kev noj qab haus huv thiab ib puag ncig lub voj voog rau ntau tshaj kaum xyoo lawm, tab sis cov tebchaw no tseem raug tsim tawm hauv MASSIVE ntau thiab tau muab tso rau hauv ntau yam khoom siv niaj hnub uas peb feem ntau siv txhua hnub. .

    Kuv nco qab mus koom ib tus kws tshawb fawb kev nthuav qhia txog PBDE's hauv Great Lakes (tshwj xeeb yog Lake Michigan) tsawg kawg 10 xyoo dhau los. Thaum nws tham, nws tseem hais ntxiv rau ib sab: “… thiab kuv puas tau hais tias qhov no yog kev lag luam loj thiab muaj zog heev?”

    Nws tau ceeb toom rau txhua tus hauv chav hais tias nws yuav muaj kev sib tw ntev, nyuaj, nce siab kom txo lossis tshem tawm pej xeem siv PBDE's, thiab qhov teeb meem pheej hmoo rau cov kws tshawb fawb tshawb fawb, tshaj tawm lossis (… ntuj ceeb tsheej txwv…) tackle hauv txoj cai pej xeem chaw ua si. Cov no yog PROFITABLE cov tebchaw, yog li nws tau hais tawm tsam tias cov neeg tsim khoom loj yuav tawm tsam kev txwv kev cai lij choj txhua kauj ruam ntawm txoj kev, siv txhua yam cuab yeej ntawm lawv pov tseg.

    Rau EPA thiab DNR tseem tab tom hu rau PBDE "qhov teeb meem tshwm sim" tsis yog qhov cim zoo. Nws txhais tau tias peb txhua tus yuav raug yuam kom tos lwm xyoo kaum lossis 2 ua ntej cov kev cai tsim nyog nyob rau hauv qhov chaw, thiab thaum ntawd nws yuav lig dhau rau peb tiam neeg. Ntau txhiab phaus ntawm PBDE tau tsim tawm thiab tso tawm rau hauv ib puag ncig los ntawm qhov ntawd tuaj yeem txuas ntxiv mus rau hauv peb cov zaub mov, dej, av thiab huab cua rau lwm 100 xyoo thiab tej zaum ntev dua, vim tias PBDE tau ua tsis tu ncua raws li lawv cov kwv tij txheeb ze, PCBs thiab Dioxins. , thiab tej zaum yuav ua rau muaj kev phom sij zoo sib xws vim lawv cov qauv tshuaj lom neeg zoo sib xws.

Lus raug kaw.
