ZEBRA FISH

 

Zebra fish are freshwater fish
belonging to the minnow
 family
of the order Cypriniformes –
Native to South Asia.

   Zebra fish – Danio rerio, are gaining popularity in basic behavioural brain research, behaviour genetics, and in translational studies because they offer a cheap and
efficient alternative to rodents and guinea pigs.

The researchers placed Zebra fish
embryos 
in dishes containing
fluoxetine, which is sold
under the
brand name
Prozac for six days

Biologists at the University of Ottawa have
discovered exposing
 fish embryos to
Prozac affected the aquatic creatures
creatures’ ability
 to manage
stress for generations,
prompting a call for
 further
research into the lasting effects
of this
 anti-depressants on humans!

This may be a cause for concern given the high
prescription rates of fluoxetine to pregnant women!

COMMENTS!

…Excessive fluoride in natural water ecosystem
has the potential to detrimentally affect
thyroid endocrine system, but little
is known of such effects or
underlying mechanisms in fish…

NOTE: If you have an aquarium and use
fluoridated tap water, remember as
you add more water you will
increase the fluoride concentration
as fluoride the does NOT
evaporate with the water.

…indeed, salmon are unaffected by natural
1 ppm fluoride in ocean water where calcium
is extremely high but are narcotized by
industrial
 fluoride in soft water at only 0.3 ppm
(Damkaer & Dey)


Millions of Salmon have instinctively know this
for thousands of years, that is why they go
to so much trouble to swim up rivers to
lay their eggs – in fluoride free water.

[ Sea water contains fluoride.]

University of Oregon

Professor Paul Engelking says
fish and fluoride don’t mix.
