Scientists Assume that Lake Ladoga is Killing Karelia Dwellers

An article titled Ladoga Kills has been published in the Russian Planet magazine. 

      As the edition pinpoints, scientists of Karelia, the Leningrad Region and St. Petersburg are concerned about the increasing number of oncology patients in the cities located around Lake Ladoga. According to the Public Health Ministry of Karelia Republic, the number of such patients in the republic is 40 percent bigger than in Russia. 

      Experts state that there are a few reasons for that. First, it is dust from stone pits. It gets into the organism not only through air, but also with drinking water from Lake Ladoga. Industrialists save on dust suppression, and microscopic particles into the lungs, intestines, and kidneys. The most terrible thing about this dust is its radioactivity.

      Another factor is nanopoisons - the nanoparticles which sorb poisons from water. Nobody in the world today is able to fight against such nanoparticles. They get anywhere and in any ways, even through the pores. Nanoparticles generally sorb poisons which are produced by blue-green algae (cyanobacteriae). Their amount grows every year in Ladoga. The lake is getting boggy. Poisonous nanoparticles also influence fish inhabiting Ladoga. Several years ago they took sturgeon from the lake. Now it is almost impossible to catch it there. But more and more often fish mutants are found in Ladoga. According to the scientists, lake mammals are subject to mutations.
