Abstract:
Many of the latest food fads are scams, but others, such as the fish fad, are riddled with pesticides and pollutants. North Carolinians are more prone to food contaminants due to the state’s farming activity, humid climate, and proximity to the coast. Citizens are advised to take food precautions, and to consider new laws that would encourage organic farming and tax pesticide use.

Abstract:
Experts say the Triangle’s drinking water is “probably” safe, but carcinogens have been detected in quantities slightly larger than considered safe. The area treatment systems are not equipped to handle this problem. Most of the area’s rivers, lakes, and reservoirs are considered unfit for swimming and drinking. The scope of the Triangle’s water pollution and solutions are examined in Part 1 of a three part series.
