GENEVA — Millions of people, particularly workers in poor nations, face serious health risks from exposure to toxic pollutants used in industrial processes such as tannery operations and textile dyeing, according to a new study.
Toxic exposure associated with mining and industrial processes all over the world “is a major health risk for the affected population,” said David Hanrahan, head of the global program at the U.S.-based Blacksmith Institute, which prepared the study jointly with the nonprofit Green Cross Switzerland.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
