'Extremely High Levels' Of Toxic Pollutants Found In Deepest Parts Of World's Oceans
Not even the very deepest, darkest depths of Earth’s oceans can escape mankind’s legacy of toxic pollution. In a shocking discovery highlighting the interconnectedness of our planet, scientists have detected “extremely high levels” of organic chemicals in the fatty tissue of amphipods, a type of crustacean, living in Mariana trench ― the deepest part of the world’s oceans. “We still think of the deep ocean as being this remote and pristine realm, safe from human impact, but our research shows that, sadly, this could not be further from the truth,” study author Alan Jami...

Do not get a serum acetaminophen level less than 4 hours after an acute ingestion
