Smells Fishy

Here's a frightening article on mercury levels in Indiana's lakes and rivers. I remember eating fish from rivers and lakes there and am wondering what sort of damage children are facing, particularly poor children who rely on stream/river/lake caught fish for sustenance.

Mercury vs. Indiana

Indiana is one of the most coal-dependent states in the United States and actually generates approximately 95 percent of the state’s electricity from fossil fuel at its 21 plants. As a result, Indiana’s dirty power plants have helped the state receive very high marks among our nation’s top polluters. In fact, Indiana is ranked among the top-five polluting states in the country.
Why am I not surprised.
