FILE - A June 15, 2001 photo from files of a sperm whale calf swimming next to its mother and a pod of sperm whales, about four miles off the coast of the Agat Marina in Guam. American scientists who spent five years shooting nearly 1,000 sperm whales with tissue-sampling darts discovered stunningly high levels of toxic heavy metals in the animals on their 87,000-mile voyage, according to a report obtained Thursday, June 24, 2010. The levels of cadmium, aluminum, chromium, lead, silver, mercury and titanium together are the highest ever found in marine mammals, the scientists say, warning that the health of both ocean life and the people who consume seafood could be at risk. Analysis of cells from the sperm whales showed pollution is reaching the farthest corners of the oceans, from deep in the polar region to the middle of nowhere in the equatorial regions, said biologist Roger Payne, founder and president of Ocean Alliance that conducted the research.
