Florida Red Tide
Red Tide has been a devastating phenomenon for the local marine wildlife, but also for Florida’s tourist economy. The red tide is caused by an algae bloom that affects the ecosystem of coastal areas and blocks light from penetrating to create oxygen which can lead to fish kills and other negative consequences. Though there have not been any reported human deaths as a result of this event, it is important to note that inflammation in humans may be exacerbated or worsened when exposed to certain microorganisms found within organisms such as phytoplankton like those seen during Red Tide events. There are many natural solutions available including CBD oil that could help alleviate some of these symptoms without causing harmful side effects on your body’s immune system. The long-term impacts on Florida’s marine life, tourism industry and the effects on human life from the Red Tide phenomena will have to be monitored and researched closely.
