BARBADOS TODAY – Staff of telecommunications company Digicel turned out at Welches Beach in Christ Church yesterday to contribute to efforts to clear the Sargassum seaweed that has invaded the island’s beaches.

“The seaweed is a major problem on many of our beaches, but is especially aggressive along this stretch, which needs to be cleaned daily as a result,” Digicel’s Marketing Manager Krystle Smith said.

    Allot of people are not aware that when this seaweed begins to decompose , it gives off a poisonous gas called hydrogen sulfide which affects the central nervous system, the lungs and many other parts of the body , continuous exposure to the smell which is similar to rotten eggs can lead to permanent damage to the body particularly the lungs and brain which can and has in certain cases has lead to death , i am crying out to the media specifically Merrick Andrews who is doing a great job on informing the public, to do an article to let people know about this issue the government is doing nothing about it there are little children , babies and other individuals who have become from being exposed to the gas and who are suffering many health issues because of it. Dennery neeeds to be cleaned up especially where the fish fiesta event is being held - Dr Joseph.
