But there  i s often another associat ed and hidden danger: fungal  toxins  that  are harmful to animal and human health. (...) They are also developing a web-based disease and toxin-forecasting system to help forewarn farmers of the potential for high toxin levels in their harvest, and to provide recommendations on treatment and management.   (...) However, by applying the knowledge gained through their research, Felipe and his team are helping farmers mitigate the harm these toxins cause.   CONTACT [email protected] IYPH newsletter Subscribe to the IYPH newsletter to keep up to date with IYPH events and initiatives.

Another challenge affecting coastal waters of nations relates to the proliferation of toxin producing microalgae in marine or brackish waters, which can cause massive fish kills, contaminate seafood with toxins, and alter ecosystems in ways that humans perceive as harmful; so called ‘Harmful Algal Blooms’ (HAB). (...) Shellfish and finfish may accumulate algal toxins. Toxins may subsequently be transmitted to humans and through consumption of contaminated seafood become a serious health threat.

With this ever-increasing demand, occurrences of a poisoning caused by consumption of toxin-contaminating seafood, either conventional or new products, have been brought to the attention of the general public from time to time. Since more and more concerns have been paid to the quality and safety of these newly explored and aquaculture products, a project “Toxic marine organisms and their toxins (TMO)” aims to improve the awareness of local community on the natural biotoxins in marine organisms and its risks to human health within the Western Pacific Region through the identification of toxic marine organisms and dissemination of relevant scientific information to public. (...) It seeks to bring together researchers from WESTPAC region to share their experiences with Singapore local communities , with objectives to:
1. exchange knowledge and understanding on HABs, toxic marine organisms and their toxins and managements between TMO members and local member state;
2. enhance awareness in dealing with seafood poisonings caused by marine toxins;
3. strengthen regional network and collaboration in marine toxins and HABs research.

Harmful Algal Blooms and Desalination In many arid regions, countries are increasingly reliant on seawater desalination to supply drinking water for rapidly growing coastal populations. (...) An emerging threat to the desalination industry is from harmful algal blooms (HABs, commonly called red tides). (...) Toxic blooms in the vicinity of desalination plants are often unrecognized events, and plant operators are generally unaware of the threat that algal toxins pose. As a result, no measurements of marine algal toxins before and after desalination have been made at any large-scale desalination plant.

Nerve agents like soman inhibit the normal actions of acetylcholinesterase, an enzyme crucial to nervous systems (Protein Data Bank Structure 2WFZ)     Toxins Toxins are toxic chemicals produced by living organisms. (...) Like the CWC, the BWC also requires States parties that possess toxin weapons to destroy them. Toxins are covered by the CWC because they are chemicals that can have chemical weapons applications, and fall under the definitions listed above for chemical weapons and toxic chemicals. Synthetic Toxins It is possible to synthesis many types of toxins in laboratories without harvesting the organisms that produce them in nature.

Indeed, some toxins are present at higher levels in HTP aerosols than in conventional c i garette smoke, and there are some additional toxins present in HTP aerosols that are not present in conventional c i garette smoke. (...) The US FDA authorization rejected claims that the use of the product is less harmful than another tobacco product or reduces risks to health. (...) Given that health may be affected by exposure to additional toxins when using HTPs, claims that HTPS reduce exposure to harmful chemicals relative to conventional cigarettes may be misleading.

What are natural toxins? Natural toxins are toxic compounds that are naturally produced by living organisms. These toxins are not harmful to the organisms themselves but they may be toxic to other creatures, including humans, when eaten. (...) Aquatic biotoxins Toxins formed by algae in the ocean and fresh water are called algal toxins.

Cleopa Kilonzo Mailu of Kenya, Chairperson of the 2020 Meeting of States Parties Biological weapons disseminate disease-causing organisms or toxins to harm or kill humans, animals or plants. (...) The consequences of the deliberate release of biological agents or toxins by state or non-state actors could be dramatic. (...) States Parties to the Biological Weapons Convention undertook “never in any circumstances to develop, produce, stockpile or otherwise acquire or retain: microbial or other biological agents, or toxins whatever their origin or method of production, of types and in quantities that have no justification for prophylactic, protective or other peaceful purposes; weapons, equipment or means of delivery designed to use such agents or toxins for hostile purposes or in armed conflict.”
