We published our last study!!

Last week we published the results of our last studies. We printed a thousandth copies and our partners distributed all around the city of Cerro de Pasco and in the capital of Lima. We also organized a virtual event in order to share the results with everybody who is interested. The event included the participation of the mayor of the municipality of Simon Bolivar and two congress representatives and has seen a huge participation of people from Cerro de Pasco itself and from all over the country. In that opportunity not only we presented our last studio but we also took a look at the evolution of pollution and health situation in Cerro de Pasco over the last decade.

The video of the presentation is available on our YouTube channel and directly at this link.

If you want to know more about all details of our investigation some link below will help you, but the short answer is that the studio rise, unfortunately, lots of concerns about the health situation in Cerro de Pasco. We can see an increase of illnesses and pollution over the last few years. Comparisons of concentration of heavy metals in the children of Paragsha have highlighted the fact that, despite the reduction of production of the mine in the last decade, the concentration of such pollutants in their bodies have increased in the last three years. This obviously also dismount the theory that the health effect in the town are the results of pollution of the last decade or so. It is actually pretty clear that the pollution is still active in the town and that the children of Paragsha not only have accumulated it over the years but they are still affected today.

If you want to learn more about the details of the study you can download the summary of the study in English at this link, download the full study in Spanish at this link and you can also watch the presentation on our YouTube channel.

 

 Meanwhile the Covid19 situation in Peru is slowly improving and we are optimistic that we can travel to Cerro de Pasco soon. Stay tuned for more updates about it!
