Toxic Waters -- New York Times series

The New York Times is doing a series of articles, and accompanying videos, about the massive pollution of American waters by corporate agri-business.

Check the series out here.

Watch the New York Times video on the water pollution caused by factory farms, "Health Ills Abound as Farm Runoff Fouls Wells" here.

The video includes an interview with a woman who describes the effects of drinking hormone-contaminated water from a nearby dairy farm on her reproductive health and that of her teenage daughters.

Water issues, livestock, energy, home electricity use, global warming (and so much more) are all tied together. The New York Times neatly ties some of this together in this video - "From Air to Water Waste."
