“The United Nations considers China one of the 13 countries most affected by water scarcity, as industrial toxins have poisoned historic water sources and were blamed last year for causing the Yangtze to turn an alarming shade of red. This month the carcasses of about 16,000 dead pigs dumped in the river have been pulled from its waters, and 1,000 dead ducks were found dumped this week in the Nanhe River in the southwestern Sichuan province.”

We have had and still have some of the same issues in America.

How could one ever forget the river in Akron that caught on fire and just recently Toledo was without water due to contamination of their water supply.

Personally, I do not eat fish from rivers unless they are caught in the headwaters of those rivers in Western States that have no industrial sites above those headwaters.

where China attacked the U.S. and took over the country in a not so surprising way,
because of over due debts the U.S. was not willing to pay back to the Chinese government!
