FLAT ILIA High percentages of nervous disturbances - Pa'rkjnson
They expensively pay water with manganese
The nightmare of flat Ilia is named Locura Manganica.
|Research of scientists in 1992 in the residents of flat
Ilia was led to the worrying conclusion that the high content of
underground waters in manganese has affected negatively in their
health, causing them from nervous disturbances until the illness
The scientists kroy'oyn kw'dwna the danger and ask the taking of direct metres, supporting that the danger is visible and today.
The regions Lehajnw'n, Myrsj'nis, Andravj'das, Crisp and Voyprasj'as "swim" litteraly on inadequately to how many waters, which are epjvarime'na at tens times above permissible limit (0,050 mg/l) with manganese.
The consumption on a lot of years, water that contains manganese, appears - according to the suspicions of scientists - influenced in certain cases efjaltjka' the social web of region, "charging" many from the residents with crowd from simple or serious nervous disturbances, with mainer the illness of Pa'rkjnson.
The nightmare that so much years was heard between the residents as "fable", is unfortunately confirmed by the doctoral thesis of nyn director of Neyrologjkoy' of Department of hospital "Saint Andreas", Nikolaos Makri'.
The research that has in her disposal the "E" was realised
in regions of Northern flat Ilia 1992. There that is to say where had
been located the problem of extraordinary content of water in
|According to the study of Mr Long, in the region
Lehajnw'n, where the stockings of manganese in potable water were
relatively low, were found two suffering from the illness of
Pa'rkjnson in total examined by accidental sample of 62 individuals.
In the region of Andravj'das, however, where the stockings of manganese in water were high, were found five suffering from the illness of Pa'rkjnson in total examined by accidental sample of 77 individuals.
"These five cases of illness Pa'rkjnson that was found then in the region of Andravj'das, sygkrjno'menes with the epidemiologic data of illness (1% with medium annual frequency constant the thirty last years, that it amounts in twenty cases per 100.000 residents) is judged high", says in the "E" and it adds:
"The increase of illness Pa'rkjnson, that was realised in the Andravj'da then, with the big content in manganese in potable water, it is very likely to be connected with toxic action of manganese in ntopamjnergjko' system KNS, which leads to further reduction of cellular neyrwnjkoy' population".
As stresses categoricalally the Mr Long, is considered something more from necessary in flat Ilia where is also located the problem, are placed special appliances and filters of detention of manganese, otherwise, in order that it reports, the problem of nervous disturbances it can receive epjdimjke's dimensions.
The solution in the problem of manganese has hro'nja only
given from the Municipality Crisp. As said in the "E" the mayor
of city, Grigoris Gjannako'poylos, from 1995 has been installed in the
space of aqueduct special appliance of biological type, which
katakrata' the manganese from water.
