River water cleaner than network water in Vaun e Deja

A rather dubious factor that affects mental health diseases is caused by heavy metal pollution that can spread in water, the environment or the products we get from the earth. Exactly, this is one of the doubts about the high statistics in the Vaut de Deja area.

We tried to find out something more about this track suspected by geologists and local residents given the mineral rich map.

We took two water samples randomly to understand the possible content of heavy metals. The first in Gomsiqe, in the river near the mine that extracts manganese, and the other in a drinking water tap from the network. After the analyzes carried out, it results that the indicators for the main metals are within the norms defined in the Decision of the Council of Ministers number 379 for drinking water.

Although they are in accordance with the norms defined in the legislation of our country, the opposite happens with the standards defined by the World Health Organization. Referring to these parameters, the indicators in the analysis responses for the two water samples for heavy metals are many times higher.

Specifically, in the sample of drinking water from the network, cadmium is six times the WHO norm, while chromium is eight times higher. Under these conditions, we can say that improvements are needed in this area to ensure the health of citizens by adapting the laws to the standards of the World Health Organization.

In the comparison between the two samples, something is found that sounds both strange and alarming. It turns out that the indicators of metal pollution are several times higher in the drinking water of the network than in the river water. Simply put, the river water in these indicators turned out to be cleaner than the one that arrives at the residents' taps.

Specifically, chromium is 6-7 times higher in tap water than in river water. Antimony is also 20 times higher in drinking water than in river water. This leaves room for great doubt as to what happens to the water.

The analysis we performed was general. There are even more specific analyzes that can lead to even clearer results. Precisely for this reason, it is necessary to carry out real studies in this area for all the natural elements that can have an impact on the appearance of such a high number of people with different abilities.

In addition to the environmental factor, the spread of dangerous substances in agricultural lands, drinking water, health problems can also have a genetic basis. However, experts judge that all of them are intertwined with the human factor, and the damage we are doing to the environment.

'The boy brings problems to school...' the dramatic confession of the father about the son with autism disorders

In the village of Mnelë, Inside Story stopped at the family of Angjelin, another diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. He is in the tenth grade, while his brother is in the 12th grade.

"At school, more about that part, I told him, for calming down, to create space to see someone, that here you are, there are only us," said Ndue Krepa, the father

The father, Ndue Krepa, says that his son is often difficult to control when he gets nervous. For this reason, he has assigned a relative to accompany him to school and stay there to ensure that he does not leave the school.

"You accompany him to school, you don't let him go out, because he even crosses the railings, he has brought me 4 problems for 4 months now," said Ndue Krepa, the father.

Managing a child with this diagnosis at school is a problem in itself. Angelin's father has often been called to appear at the educational institution.

They told me to take medicine, it has brought me problems, I have been to school 4 times now, I even ended up in the police, my nerves are a mess. It's more bullying than bullying, when there are nerves at home with me, I know this part and he took me to the police, there were 3 cases that happened' said Ndue Krepa, the father

He does not know what will happen in the future with his son, but he says that he does not expect help from anyone, even more so from the institutions. Perhaps, the lack of strong voices to ask for help from the state, has neglected possible treatment programs for the phenomenon.

I have to raise my son myself, my wife did it, I don't have to ask the state for anything. I don't want anything else from the great God, only to improve better,' said Ndue Krepa, the father

Angelini has one brother and three sisters. Even in this family, one of the other children had the same diagnosis. According to the father, one of the girls had similar health problems, but she overcame them and got married.

"I had little and a daughter is having a good time, I married her," said Ndue Krepa, the father

Some differently abled family members, mother: The doctor did not understand that the son was autistic

In some families we visit in the Vau i Deja area, it makes us understand the true dimensions of autism and other concomitant diagnoses. Marte Barçina says that there are other people in the tribe who have health problems. She also takes care of her sister who lives with her and has mental health issues.

'My sister is sick, I do all the services for her, my brother's son has Down syndrome, we have a lot of problems. My sister is 60 years old, she forgets, she talks to herself every day, she talks bad to me, says Marte, we left this job,' said Marte Ba?ina, the mother.

"The prevalence is so high that the attention should be greater even in those things that make a difference, for example early identification from the first visits when the child goes to the pediatric specialist doctor to the consultant", said Denata Toçe, psychologist.
