Asthma, Heart Disease and Raw Sewage in Fresno, CA

Fresno is known as the “Asthma Capital of California.” It seems the problem continues to worsen every year.

Can you imagine the horrendous pollution being caused by years of secretly discharging toxic, infectious, disease-carrying raw sewage from one end of town to the other. (Central valley) We hear about “pollution” but we do not hear about “sewage pollution.”  Contaminating our air, soil, while spreading deadly bacteria and pathogens from MRSA.

Below are some links of intrest ….

    http://www.1000friendsoffresno.org/:
    One child in six has asthma–more than 3 times the national average. Air quality flags go up each morning at schools telling kids how safe it is to breathe. Efforts to clean up the air are underway, but they’ll take years–not soon enough to let this generation breathe easy.

    In fact, simply breathing in this area, one of the country’s richest agricultural regions, is as bad as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day and for Hispanics, who live in the midst of some of the worst pollution, those cigarettes have no filters.

    1. Massive cover up – city officials using sewage to exterminate. Followed by altered records to cover up evidence; perjury to deny.
