La Oroya: Full Metal Air

After a recent chat on Twitter with a grad student doing research in a particular Peruvian town, I learned about the town of La Oroya that has a smelling plant, recently liquidated by the United States company Doe Run. It provides us with a variety of heavy metals that assist our lives. It also poisons the children of the area.

Watch this documentary. These sorts of things happen to people in our name, for our products, and our convenience.
