SAS & European Centre for Environment & Human Health team up
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 3 June, 2014 - Surfers Against Sewage has teamed up with the European Centre for the Environment & Human Health (Exeter University Medical School) to produce a study to help identify the health risks associated with exposure to marine pollution.
The more data we have, the more robust our findings will be to support our ongoing clean water initiatives. Over recent years concern about the cleanliness of coastal water and its possible adverse effects on health has led to tighter regulations and monitoring of seawater at popular beaches. Yet, new standards are about to come into force and a shocking 10% of the UK’s bathing waters are predicted to fail.
Please take the 5 minutes to fill in the short online survey. All the data will be treated as confidential and the questionnaire covers your health, visits to the beach and the activities you have undertaken at the beach.
To ensure we have a good control group we need to hear from you even if you haven’t been to the beach or used the sea in the last few weeks. The survey is live now, until the 16th June.Thank you. Team SAS.
