With Reckless Abandon We Contaminate Our Home

Yet another study has emerged indicating that reckless disregard towards the consequences of environmental pollution is a health hazard for all of us.

Pollution does not recognise boundaries or property rights and it can take decades for the full consequences of a pollutant to become apparent. Methylmercury is an excellent example of that.
