Pollution Kills 1.7 Million Children Every Year, WHO Says


www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/pollution-k...


We are not slaves of the market. Our human life has a greater meaning than making money, making profit, and working for the market or for multinational corporations.

Read the report and not the Huff Post article and you will see that your allegation is false.  70% of these 1.7 million deaths are due to unclean water not from pollution, but from unsanitary living conditions.  This is more due to natural microorganisms in the water and poor removal of human waste than pollution.  That being said, that still leaves several hundred thousand children that die due to pollution and that is too much.

First of all, it is not MY allegation.  Every word, including the


title of this thread, is not mine.


Secondly, it seems that you are confused by the word "pollution."


pol·lu·tion


pəˈlo͞oSH(ə)n/


noun







  1. the presence in or introduction into the environment of a substance or thing that has harmful or poisonous effects.

your thread title is deceptive and click-baity. It gives the reader that the false notion that all those kids are dying from the burning of fossil fuels or too many plastic bottles in the ocean. That's not the case though. Those kids are dying from poor sanitation. They're dying from literally drinking sh#t.

In all reality, they're dieing because of Republican Tax Breaks for the rich.. For God's sake, lets not give any money to fix these kind of problems..

Like I posted earlier, the title words are not mine and poor sanitation is


considered a form of pollution.

C'mon Comrade Art Marx, it is not liberalism that you don't take


seriously, it is reality that gives you a struggle.
