US Government, Its Agencies Disappointed Katrina Victims: A Guest Commentary

There are a lot to feel between the lines of every day’s flashing headlines on the New Orleans’ “toxic soup”. Every city throughout the United States is suffering its balefulness. The air, water and every breath of the habitants is poisoned by pesticides, heavy metals, petroleum products and other industrial chemicals. Dr. James Martin of The Martin Clinic, in a guest commentary to the Environmental News Network criticizes the US government. He claims that it did not live up to the expectations and as a result so many suffered in New Orleans and the surrounding Gulf Coast following hurricane Katrina. He also alleges the government agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Institute of Health (NIH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) could not live up to the trust of the victims.
