Can They Do That?

I went for a dip and my friggin hair fell out!!

Oh my, it seems the authorities at Japan’s  Fukushima nuclear plant are going to begin releasing 11,500 tons of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean to make more room in the storage tanks for the more highly contaminate liquids. Um, the Japanese government said  the water which will be released poses no immediate threat to humans. Hmm, and by immediate you mean?

Biggest Mass Poisoning In History

OMG, if you are planning a trip to Bangladesh anytime soon, make sure you only drink bottled water. Researchers fear that up to 77 million people in Bangladesh have been exposed to extremely high levels of arsenic found in village water wells. In other words it’s potentially the biggest mass poisoning in history. One in five deaths in the country are linked to high arsenic levels in their system. The irony is that these villages were encourage to dig wells rather than to use filthy water from the rivers not realizing that arsenic is found in abundance in the soil and rocks.
