Danube most contaminated river in Europe

Comprehensive research into anti-biotics contamination in the world’s rivers found the Danube to be the most affected river in Europe, it was announced at a conference in Helsinki on Monday.

The most dangerous implication of this is that the contamination makes bacteria resistant to life-saving medications.

Researchers are afraid that viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites might claim more lives than cancer by 2050 as a result of resistance building up in bacteria.
