Mid-Wales has four spa towns and Llangammarch Wells is the smallest of them. The actual well has been closed for some years and today it is visited mainly by anglers and those who want to have a peaceful break away from it all. It is a small rural community with the main industry being agriculture. It is a mere eight miles from Builth Wells, where the annual Royal Welsh Show is held.

Why seek injury solicitors in Llangammarch Wells?

The well in Llangammarch Wells contains barium, a naturally occurring silver-white metal. Barium is combined with other substances to produce rat poisoning (barium carbonate) while it is used in hospitals as barium sulphate before an x-ray is taken. However, exposure to barium can cause serious health issues. Barium and other toxic substances can be found in TVs and if they are not properly disposed of, it can leak into the soil and cause environmental damage. If groundwater is polluted then this could lead to health hazards.
Some classic signs of barium toxicity include low potassium levels in the blood, arrhythmia, respiratory failure, gastrointestinal problems, paralysis, muscle twitching and high blood pressure. It can lead to kidney damage, respiratory failure and death. Regular barium exposure may even contribute to the development of neurodegenerative diseases, including multiple sclerosis.
