Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
Russia has the dubious honor of having three locations in the top ten most polluted places on earth.
Members of the former Soviet Union make up half of the list.
Half of them are in Asia.
And, for some reason, I thought China would have more cities on the list…or India.
Chernobyl, Ukraine – after all these years…..
Haina, Dominican Republic
La Oroya, Peru
Rudnaya Pristan, Russia (Compiled by Paul Grant in Washington)
The list was populated by the Blacksmith Institute, a New York-based nonprofit group.
Blacksmith did not rank them, as complete health records from some developing countries were not available.
The list, which Blacksmith said it plans to issue annually, was compiled with help from specialists at Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, Hunter College, India’s ITT, University of Idaho, Mt. Sinai Hospital and environmental remediation companies.
