Living in a toxic town

Many residents of Mossville, Louisiana, suspect their proximity to more than a dozen chemical plants may be responsible for what they say are high rates of cancer and other diseases in the area.

Is there a place near you where pollution is making people sick? CNN is investigating the environment’s effects on health as part of Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s Toxic Towns USA special. We want you to join us in the newsgathering process.

“Put yourself on video and document conditions in your area, or take photos of what’s around you. Tell us what industrial or chemical pollution may be contributing to health problems for you and those you love, and be sure not to put yourself in a dangerous situation,” CNN writes.

“Tell us about toxic towns near you and Dr. Gupta may report on your community.”

    I am a resident of Henderson, NV. There is a company here called “Timet” (& a few others in the general area), that work with titanium alloy…and another one makes sodium hypochloride. Also, the company called “Pepcon” used to be here…I believe they made rocket fuel (this plant ended up exploding…I believe they are now out further in the desert – away from the city after this explosion)…I have lived here over 15 years, & I wonder how toxic our ground is, & our ground water, from all of these substances being made here in Henderson, NV. It would be great if you could research & report on this ! Appreciate your help !
