Aloha environmental readers!
I had wrote about this health concern due to the recent molasses spill in Honolulu, HI.
Since molasses itself produces bacteria, and that certain bacteria makes things decay fast, creating a combination of dead matter from the marine life itself.
This would be a health warning issue to humans and also land animals.
The State of Hawaii pollution signs are nothing to frequent beach goers. Those beach goers that jumps into the water and or paddles, will come into contact with bacteria that can cause some type of rapid growing bacteria that could infect someone easily.
To put it in a simple way: The molasses killed everything in the contaminated areas.
This may or may not be similar to the flesh eating bacteria, but it will produce infections.
For safety concern wise, the public should avoid these contaminated areas for the time being.
Please advise people not to go into the waters and follow the State of Hawaii pollution sign's discretion.
Even though I have not listed it onto my biography, I have my own experience in science.
I have worked with Marine Biologists at HIMB (Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology) as a paid lab assistant, and the well-rounded science field as an assistant.
I have taken courses and some labs of Biology (Human and Marine), Chemistry, Microbiology, and Geology / Geophysics.
I also do research in writing online environmental articles.
