The 7 Most Toxic Places to Live

http://www.care2.com/greenliving/the-7-most-toxic-place...

As the worlds population balloons to almost 7 billion, its become more and more difficult to find anywhere on Earth unaffected by man-made pollution and development, and far too often it takes things going really wrong before people take action to keep our planet clean. So heres a list that might help to motivate: The 15 most polluted places in the world.
Citarum River, Indonesia

The Citarum has been called the worlds most polluted river. Around five million people live in the rivers basin, and most of them rely on its flow for their water supply.



Riachuelo Basin, Argentina

The Riachuelo Basin is a waterway whose name is synonymous with pollution. More than 3,500 factories operate along the banks of the river, a landscape that also includes 13 slums, numerous illegal sewage pipes running directly into the river, and 42 open garbage dumps.
