    Saw on CBC TV the other day a feature on China. Sorry, I forgot the title. It said that China is starting to feel the negative effects of industrialization.

    The feature also said that China's agriculture is threatened by industrialization. Agricultural lands are being converted into industrial areas, and the remaining agricultural lands in these areas are being polluted by heavy metals and untreated wastewater coming from factories.

    Their lands are pressured to produce more, and they in turn use more fertilizers and pesticides than what would be normally used. There was even a Chinese agricultural official who dared to bare these facts on TV. He said, it wouldn't be long when China will depend on other countries for food to support it's growing population. He is lobbying for industries to put the proper waste management facilities.
