The report drafted in the bodies of the European Commission (EULUP) notes that arable land in Kosovo is highly polluted, which is why the use of local agricultural products constitutes a danger for the lives of Kosovo citizens, the Pristina-based daily Express stated on Monday.

The report drafted in the bodies of the European Commission (EULUP) notes that arable land in Kosovo is highly polluted, which is why the use of local agricultural products constitutes a danger for the lives of Kosovo citizens, the Pristina-based daily Express stated on Monday.

Citizens using fruit, vegetables, meat or dairy products are bringing their lives in jeopardy, the report quoted by Express says, adding that agricultural products grown in Kosovo constitute a major danger and can result in fatalities.

The research on arable land pollution was completed in January 2012, under the supervision of professor Wolfgang Spier, and the report is so alarming that it calls for an urgent confirmation of the research results in order to avoid potential social unrests, the Pristina-based daily states.

EULUP confirmed that the arable land is overly polluted with heavy metals, especially chromium, nickel, lead, zinc and arsenic.

The high concentration of the pollutants is present in entire Kosovo, the EULUP report notes.
