Food Sources At Risk: Chemicals Being Emitted Overseas Are Finding Their Way Into North American And European Streams and Lakes
Recently, the Chinese government has issued two high level pollution warnings to residents of Beijing. During that period, businesses, schools, and government offices were closed. One of the world’s largest cities in the world was literally shut down with no traffic flow.
North Americans and Europeans may think that they are immune from these pollutants because of distance and geography. Not true! They may also think that these pollutants do not get into their food chain and affect the food that they eat – especially food that has been cultivated domestically. Again, not true.
Through a process called biomagnification, these pollutants and other dangerous toxins, including Persistent Organic Pollutants (POP’s) are able to freely travel the world and deposit themselves into the soil, lakes and rivers of North American and European cities and towns. These toxins enter the ecosystem and eventually build up to dangerous toxic levels.
Pesticides, which included DDT and 11 other chemicals have been given the unceremonious title of the The Dirty Dozen. These are chemicals that the international community has deemed the most dangerous.
What was once a Beijing problem is now a New York, Los Angeles, London, Toronto, and Paris problem.
