Toxic air and water are killing an estimated 710,000 to 760,000 Chinese each year. Even in a country of more than 1.3 billion people, that is a shocking toll. (Source: Washington Post)

The numbers of people dying from pollution, in the Cancer villages, (Source: BBC) or from drinking the black rivers are staggering. Those not dying are suffering a hideous cost to their health, the health of their children, and their quality of life.
