Excerpt
Excerpt: The presence of toxic cyanobacteria (blue?green algae) in surface waters used for drinking water sources and recreation is receiving increasing attention worldwide as a potential health concern (1?5). Human illness resulting from exposure to blue?green algal toxins, though less common than poisonings of wild and domestic animals (6?9), has been reported (1,2,10?12). In 1996, 55 hemodialysis patients died in Brazil when the dialysis water became contaminated with toxins from the blue?green alga Microcystis aeruginosa (13). Although potential health risks from exposure to algal toxins in surface waters have been widely recognized, potential risks from exposure through another important route?ingestion of contaminated dietary supplements made from blue?green algae (BGA)?have received only limited attention (2,3,6,14). Because of its concentrated form, the exposure potential to algal toxins in contaminated BGA products can greatly exceed potential exposure through water consumption or recreational contact.
