100% Of Fresh-Water Lakes And Streams Are Polluted With Mercury
One hundred percent of the 291 freshwater fish tested by the U.S. Geological Survey contained mercury contamination. Sixty-six percent of those fish had levels higher than "level of concern" set by the Environmental Protection Agency. Mercury pollution occurs most from air-born emissions, primarily burning coal. We need to stop burning coal on this planet. As I stated in my books, the level of multiple chemical contamination in freshwater rivers and lakes is 35%, and in oceans 8%.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible for regulating industrial mercury from factories and plants but it does not enforce those regulations. Instead, money goes to FDA to stop raw-milk farmers from producing raw milk. Do not think for one minute that authorities in our government have any interest in our health. Government authorities are concerned 95% with economy. Is the 5% concern for us just for show and smokescreen, giving only an impression of concern?
