Coliform, pharmaceuticals, PCBs ... yes, it's another fine mess we've made, not only of our environment, but of our bodies. The effects are minute, slow-building, but cumulative. We will someday reach a point where our bodily defenses will be so degraded they'll be no match for some strong natural pandemic, and humans will die by the hundreds of millions.
    All as a result of our commercially driven, profit incentive, "use it all up right away" society.
