New sea danger - drug resistance

Monday March 30th, 2015

Surfing and swimming are increasingly popular in British coastal waters - and thousands may be exposed to dangerous drug-resistant bacteria, researchers warned today.

The researchers at Exeter University medical school claim that water-users may have been exposed to drug-resistant E.coli on at least six million occasions.

But, they say, their findings are not a reason for people to stop enjoying the sea.

Future studies will seek to assess the direct health impact of E. coli on people using the sea.

The researchers say surfers and swimmers are most at risk because they tend to take in water.

Their research also showed a strong link between E.coli risk and water quality at beaches, they report in Environment International.

They say that 0.12% of E.coli bacteria found in the sea were resistant to third-generation cephalosporin antibiotics, a powerful class of drugs.
