There has never been running water here. Â Some of the dwindling number of residents, all of whom live in poverty, recall that there were wells up until around 30 years ago, where locals could draw water. Those wells are now dry or contaminated. Â People who live here have to make a seven-mile journey to buy water or depend on donations made to the local Baptist church.
Welcome to Sandbranch, just 14 miles southeast of Dallas, the fifth wealthiest city in America. Â

In 1990, the New England Journal of Medicine published the results of an 11-year study into the long term cognitive and neurobehavioral effects of lead exposure in children. Â
What Does Lead Do?
The children had been exposed to lead during their childhood, in some cases relatively low levels. Â 132 test subjects were re-examined in 1988 and the following neurobehavioral traits were identified as being related to lead exposure during childhood:
Poorer hand/eye co-ordination
Slower reaction times
“No Safe Level of Lead”
Although some lead can be excreted by the body, children are more susceptible to long term effects from lead exposure, as their …

The Mariana Trench in the western Pacific Ocean is almost 7 miles deep. Â Its perpetually black depths are commonly referred to as the most remote place on the entire planet. Â Extraordinary creatures survive in the dark with water pressure of eight tons per square inch. Â But something else has been discovered in this inaccessible ocean trench. Â Astonishing levels of man-made pollution, along with plastic bags and soda cans. Â
Plastics on the Menu
Weâ€™re steadily choking our planet with plastic, according to recent research. Â Up to 13 million tons of plastic finds it way into our oceans every single year, where it can then be ingested by wildlife. Â Of course, …

We recently looked at the plastics that we unknowingly drink when we crack open a fresh bottle of water or turn on the tap. Â America is the world leader in plastic fiber contamination, with a horrifying 94% of nationwide samples testing positive. Â India and Lebanon are the closest runners-up; but for now, the dubious honor of topping the plastic fiber contamination table belongs to us. Â
Plastic is Not Fantastic
Plastic fibers are expelled into the air and into our water supply all the time. Â The problem is that our current methods of treating drinking water are inadequate. Â Thatâ€™s not a new fact; horror stories about the problems with Americaâ€™s water infrastructure …
Yet another unpalatable fact about Americaâ€™s drinking water emerged upon publication of a report into the presence of microscopic plastic fibers in an astonishing 94 percent of samples tested.
Itâ€™s not just America that is swallowing untold quantities of plastics from industry, homes and manufacturing; around 80 percent of samples worldwide tested positive. Â If itâ€™s in our water, then itâ€™s in our food. Â If itâ€™s our food, then our bodies are awash with plastic fibers of unknown origin. Â
It gets worse. Â Plastic doesnâ€™t biodegrade. Â Instead, it just gets smaller and smaller until itâ€™s a tiny particle measured by nanometer (one nanometer is one-billionth of a …

It hasnâ€™t been a great couple of months to be in the soda industry.Â On 20th April this year a report was published by the America Stroke Association that appeared to draw a link between the consumption of artificially sweetened “diet” soda and the risk of suffering a stroke or dementia.Â A further report from Beverage Marketing Corps pointed to the fact that Americans now officially drink more bottled water than soda.
Coca-Cola responded by announcing job cuts and a new CEO who, it is believed, will try to steer the mighty company towards “healthier drinks” that have more appeal for todayâ€™s consumer.
