I just now saw the slide show of the 10 most polluted places and it truly broke my heart. I feel like corporations and governments should be doing more for the lives of the people they ruin.

In the arid regions, North of Mexico, groundwater has natural pollution with fluorides, arsenic and lead. In many cases, this in the only water source for all uses mainly in the rural areas.

“One hundred and fifty years ago, the monster began, this country had become a place of industry. Factories grew on the landscape like weeds. Trees fell, fields were up-ended, rivers blackened. The sky choked on smoke and ash, and the people did, too, spending their days coughing and itching, their eyes turned forever toward the ground. Villages grew into town, towns into cities. And people began to live on the earth rather than within it.”
― Patrick Ness, A Monster Calls

How much will you give for the lives of your childrens children, which is yourself? How much are people willing to give up for air, earth, water, animals, and the coming generations? I think the answer to that is pretty clear.

We can have technology, prosperity, nice homes and cars, but at the same time we must be conscious of what we are dumping into the water, the air and our food.

As a toxicologist I know how nasty chemicals can be when they are at the wrong place. Neglect is culpable.

We are living in one of the most polluted city and I am concerned about my child, about Mongolian children and about our future.
