Millions of bacteria in the sea but none of them is harmful

Sea water in its natural state (even in the most pristine places) contains one million bacteria in every cubic centimeter. One billion bacteria in every liter.

"In each milliliter of sea water live about a thousand protists, about a million bacteria (...) and as we will see later, it is possible that these counts are very conservative. These planktonic microorganisms are not only responsible for the degradation of marine litter, but they also carry out most of the photosynthesis and respiration in the sea and thus maintain the CO2 balance between the sea and the atmosphere." (Source: www.asesmar.org, only in archive.org and not the document, only their website).

Not only are they not harmful to humans and animals, but we also live thanks to them, as they are the largest source of oxygen on the planet (not tropical forests, but the oceans are the largest producers of oxygen, and in the oceans these microorganisms are the ones that produce it).

And, on top of that, they degrade the garbage we throw into them! (This is not an excuse to continue throwing it, but it is not too important either: see articles on the missing plastic in the oceans and its self-purifying power).

They are not harmful to humans because experience shows it:



As you can see, on 6/14/2024 I've added many articles.

In Spain you can buy sea water at cheap price at any diet store and some supermarkets. Examples: this diet store, this pharmacy (at higher price), this supermarket.

There is also an organic bakery making bread with sea water and sells it too.

There are 5 companies bottling and selling sea water because there is a lot of people drinking sea water on a daily basis.

If you at your country become a critical mass of people interested in sea water, companies offering it will arise.

So, it's in your hands, sharing this information meeting your friends, by phone or social networks, to make the conditions where these companies will appear and make sea water even more available to all the people.
