Once again, who needs clean water in New Zealand??

Raised levels of lead found in five Dunedin primary schools

The Southern District Health Board say they are investigating raised levels of lead in five Dunedin primary schools: Bathgate Park, George Street Normal, Mornington, North East Valley and Opoho, a report said.

“Medical officer of health Marian Poore said the highest sample level was 595mg of lead per kg of soil, which is above the recommended government standard for home gardens (210mg) but below [the totally arbitrary level set] for public parks (880mg).”

Principals’ Federation criticise delay on reporting lead levels

The Principals’ Federation say they are alarmed the health authorities have taken about 16 months before telling schools that soil on school grounds are contaminated with raised levels of lead.

“Bathgate Park was one of the schools affected, and principal Whetu Cormack told Morning Report he was only told by the Ministry of Education about the results yesterday,” a report said.

Lead exposure destroys your life
“Children with elevated blood-lead levels at age 11 ended up as adults with lower cognitive function and lower-status occupations than their parents…”

“The findings, published [in March] in JAMA, were based on a study that followed about 1,000 children born in the early 1970s in the coastal city of Dunedin, New Zealand. More than half were tested for lead in 1983, and nearly three decades later, those who’d had higher blood-lead levels as children were more likely to have lower IQs and to wind up lower on the socioeconomic ladder. Both associations remained even after researchers accounted for the children’s IQs, their mothers’ IQs and their social-class backgrounds.”

The dairy industry gives a new meaning to Golden Bay
“While monitoring water quality at Te Waikoropupū Springs Friends of Golden Bay noticed that where Fish Creek flows into the Springs reserve it repeatedly had an unpleasant appearance and smell after rain events.”

“Bearing in mind the recent outbreak of illness in Hawke’s Bay, we initially tested for both Campylobacter and E.coli. We took samples during rain events when the problem was evident. We are glad to report no Campylobacter was found. However, the picture with E.coli is a different matter. We present the results in the table below,” say Friends of Golden Bay.

E-coli levels from farm runoff under rain events will always be high and exceed drinking and swimming water standards.” and “It is common to get between 1,000-10,000 E.coli/100ml, depending on the density of cows and timing of when the cows were last in the paddock. It is like where we were at with dairy shed effluent 20 years ago.”

E-coli found in Waimarama water supply

Residents in Waimarama, Hawke’s Bay, have been told to boil their water, after E-coli bacteria was detected in the public water supply.

People in Hastings District Council should boil the water before using it for “drinking, cleaning teeth, making ice, washing dishes and preparing food.”

“The council is [already] the focus of a public inquiry into how campylobacter got into their water supply last year.”

Two weeks ago, the Enfield Road Reservoir in Hawke’s Bay that supplies much of Napier was chlorinated after testing positive for E-coli.

“Radiation in New Zealand food is not from Fukushima” ?

Posted by te2ataria on September 22, 2016

Raise your [third] hand if you can verify the following information:

“Two post-Fukushima meltdown studies [conducted by the government] have found radiation in New Zealand food: but fear not – it is merely harmless remains [REALLY?] from nuclear testing decades ago.

[FOOD SAFETY MUCH?]

“While conspiracy posts on social media may have people thinking that harmful levels of radiation were making their way to New Zealand, and into the seafood we eat, science has proven that is not the case [REALLY?]

“After the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami, which caused a meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, New Zealand’s Ministry for Primary Industries [MPI] commissioned two studies to look at radiation making its way into the New Zealand diet.

“By examining 40 foods including farmed salmon, shellfish and wild fish they have found that the radioactive version of caesium at levels less than 0.1 per cent of the international guidance limit for contamination.”

[REALLY?]

“Not only were the elements expected to be found in Fukushima fallout not present, but modelling showed it would be about 10 years before it reached New Zealand – and by then it would not be at harmful levels,” MPI mouthpiece said.

Woman contracts Guillain Barre syndrome after drinking tap water in Havelock North, NZ

Posted by te2ataria on September 15, 2016

Sent by a reader

Victim one of 5,200 people infected by campylobacter in Havelock North gastro outbreak

Single mum April Singh, 41, has been diagnosed with Guillain Barre syndrome, a serious neurological disorder, after contracting campylobacteriosis from drinking infected tap water during Havelock North’s gastro outbreak in August.

Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS) can develop after a campylobacter infection.

“GBS is an autoimmune disorder, where the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues. The immune cells attack the myelin sheath – the fatty substance covering nerve fibres. The myelin sheath insulates and protects the nerve fibres and assists with the passage of impulses throughout the nervous system. If the myelin sheath is damaged, messages from the brain may be slowed or blocked completely.”

The Indian mother of eight, who works as a cleaner, said she “couldn’t vacuum or stand for long periods of time. I’m a pretty strong person and this isn’t me.”

“I’ve gone from being a real strong person to being a weakling,” she said.

Singh, who was in considerable pain, was misdiagnosed at the Hastings medical centre on September 3. “She was told there that she may have fibromyalgia and she went home. Five days later, when things hadn’t improved, she went to her GP, who sent her to hospital,” said a report.

At least 111 people [2.32 per 100,000 people] with GBS are hospitalized in New Zealand each year and a third of of them are related to campylobacter.

NZ’s long-running Campylobacter epidemic from poultry: Now with antibiotic resistance

NZ is known as the “Campylobacter capital of the world” in food safety circles for having the highest rates reported by any country. Now that our rates have halved (due to past regulations [9]) we may, thankfully, have slipped from first place, but our rate (150 per 100,000 in 2014 [4]) is still much higher than other countries we typically compare ourselves with. It is more than 10 times that of the US (13 per 100,000 in 2014 [10]) and more than 50% higher than Australia (94 per 100,000 in 2013 [11]). Largely eliminating poultry as a source could virtually halve our incidence and show that we can manage this food safety problem effectively.

NZ’s reputation as a trusted exporter of safe food took a battering following the botulism and milk powder scare in August 2013 (the “whey protein concentrate incident”). We need to demonstrate our low tolerance of food contaminated with real microbial hazards, as is clearly the situation with Campylobacter in fresh chicken.

All is well in New Zealand: Police confirm 5 sudden deaths in Kaitaia

Posted by te2ataria on August 18, 2016

Sent by a reader – Links added by Moderator N.

Five young males have died suddenly in Kaitaia in the past 12 weeks: Police

Police have confirmed at least five young males aged between 17 and 25 have “died suddenly” in Kaitaia since late May.

A spokeswoman said all were “sudden death incidents which we have attended, where our investigations lead us to believe the person has taken their own life”.

“We pass our investigation findings to the Coroner, who will ultimately make a ruling as to how a death has occurred,” she said.

Community leader Ricky Houghton of He Korowai Trust said earlier today that the five deaths reflected “a community in crisis”.

“The people are feeling doomed. There’s a sense of hopelessness and helplessness of the young people,” he said.

NZ Govt launches water supply inquiry after thousands fall sick

“The New Zealand government launched an inquiry on Thursday into the contamination of a regional water supply that has left thousands of people sick with vomiting and diarrhoea” said a report.

The outbreak of campylobacter bacteria, an acute form of gastroenteritis, has sickened around 3,000 people, prompting the government to officials said.

About half of those are in the town of Havelock North on New Zealand’s North Island, about 250 km (155 miles) northeast of the capital Wellington, where schools have been closed and medical facilities overloaded.

“The situation in Havelock North is concerning,” Minister for Health Jonathan Coleman said in a statement. “It is important that the public has confidence in their water supply.”

“New Zealand [deceptively] touts its clean, green image abroad under a ‘100 percent pure [manure]’ campaign to attract tourists, as well as to highlight its food and water safety as a hallmark of its premium [tainted] export products.”

Gastro outbreak: Mushroom farm linked to previous water contamination
“In October last year, E. coli was found in a well at the Brookvale borefield, which draws water from the Te Mata aquifer, providing all of Havelock North’s water.”
