Eels in River Thames under the effect of cocaine

The eels in the River Thames have ended up becoming hyperactive because of the high contamination levels of cocaine in the water, which enters the river from nearby sewers during storms.

According to new research, so much cocaine is being consumed in London every day that it is leaving a negative impact on marine life in the river.

London is famous for the amount of cocaine which is consumed and the measures being taken to treat the river are not having the required effect.

According to scientists, eels are vulnerable because they cannot detect cocaine especially when they are still young.

Meanwhile, according to biologist  Anna Capaldo, the results show that on the water’s surface all around the world, one can find the presence of drugs. She explained that the water in cities with a dense population contains a higher concentration of drugs.
