We are on the brink of an ecological catastrophe. Due to pollution, and with climate change compounding the situation, cyanobacteria are growing more than ever. Toxic blooms now occur in lakes, rivers, dams, and lagoons all over the world. Meanwhile, diseases linked to this bacteria — such as ALS, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s — are increasing in many countries.
