At a certain stage of development, a human embryo can hardly be differentiated from that of a dolphin. Humans beings begin with a small tail and also feature folded neck structures, which in fish turn to gills, but in humans develop into jaws.
It is no wonder why people feel drawn to the shores. According to this article in Discovery News, Casey Bergman from the University of Manchester says that, “We are just very highly evolved fish!”
That is why the rate at which the oceans are becoming acidic is alarming. National Geographic states that the oceans absorb about a third of human-created carbon dioxide emissions. Over the past 300 million years, ocean pH has been slightly alkaline, but that is changing rapidly. Ocean acidification is putting ecosystems at great risk.
The human body is likewise in danger when too much carbon dioxide and acidic waste builds up in the blood. The acidosis puts the organ systems at great risk.
“About 70 percent of the human body is made up of water and, coincidentally, more than 70 percent of Earth is covered in water,” this NASA fact sheet states.
Whether it is the oceans of the world, or the oceans within your body, water is the matrix of life and maintaining pH balance is crucial for survival.
