Yuyang Liu: Arsenic poisoning victims in Hunan Province
Oct 13, 2015
“My latest story about Arsenic poisoning victims in Hunan Province, China has been published on Caixin Weekly. The victims live in a village near the highly polluted Arsenic sulphide ore mine and factories, hundreds of people died of skin cancer, lung cancer or liver cancer. Though the government shut down the mine and factory in 2011, but the pollution’s still left over. It’s the dark side of the old economic development mode in China.
