Abstract

Life-threatening diseases emerging from both short-term and chronic exposure to toxins via water have largely been ignored. Toxic cyanobacterial blooms are an emerging issue worldwide, particularly in developing countries, because of increasing amounts of nutrient pollutants in surface waters and warmer weather patterns. The increasing number of cyanobacteria-infested surface waters used for drinking, irrigation, and recreation water constitute a potential risk to public health, domestic animals, and wildlife. Proliferations of cyanobacteria can produce hepatotoxins, neurotoxins, and cytotoxins. Microcystins, anatoxin-a, and anatoxin-a(s) are most commonly associated with fatal poisoning of domestic animals and wildlife.
