We’ve all had the same feeling at the start of the day – I need to get to the beach, the sun is shining, and then I feel the need to wash the dishes.
But now, it’s time to go, because our bodies are telling us it’s not going to happen.
We know that we can wash dishes, but what about the water?
A recent study conducted by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSOC) has revealed that water can have a negative impact on the wellbeing of marine life, and it has to do with the chemicals in the water.
The scientists found that the chemicals used to keep the body and marine life alive are much more concentrated in water than they are in air.
We know from research on the impact of air pollution that chemicals that come out of the atmosphere have a huge impact on human health, with chemicals in our atmosphere having a significant impact on our skin.
What can you do about it?
The RSC’s study looked at chemicals in two different types of water – oceanic and freshwater – and how they impact on a variety of marine animals, including the oceanic fish and crabs, the sea flowers and sea water plants.
In the study, the researchers analysed the concentration of two compounds called hydroxyl radicals, which are responsible for the growth of algae and fungi.
The hydroxylamine compounds are found in seawater, and the researchers discovered that the concentrations of the hydroxyrone radicals were similar to those in the air.
This means that the water is not the only source of these chemicals in marine life.
It also means that these chemicals are present in the seawater from which the marine animals consume the food they consume.
So what are these hydroxydolons?
The researchers have identified hydroxymethyl radicals as the primary chemical responsible for algae and fungus growth.
Hydroxyl radical compounds are very small molecules that are produced when oxygen is lost in seawaters.
Hydroxymethylamine (HMA) is a hydroxylethylamine derivative, which means it is a chemical that forms when oxygen levels drop.
It is produced by algae in the ocean, and its production is dependent on the oxygen levels.
However, the HMA produced in the environment is less effective in combatting algae and the algae feed on the water in which the hydroxylamines are formed.
This is because the production of hydroxysyl radicals is dependent upon oxygen levels in the sea water.
What this means is that when there is less oxygen in the atmosphere, the algae can’t produce the HAA that they need to survive.
So the more oxygen in seawates, the less algae are able to grow.
The study also looked at how these hydroxyamines affect the organisms in the ecosystem.
In fact, the authors of the study suggest that the hydrolysis of the marine algae reduces the amount of HAA in seawats, and that this results in a reduction in the amount that can be metabolised by the marine life in the system.
What does this mean for us?
It is important to recognise that, while it may seem counterintuitive to eat marine algae, they are very nutritious and contain high levels of nutrients.
What the study also reveals is that the increased production of these compounds in the oceans is linked to the release of these molecules into the atmosphere.
This could potentially have a positive effect on the ocean ecosystem and the overall health of the ocean.
