Dangerous pesticides, lindane and endosulfan, are almost eliminated in Great Lakes!

"Two banned insecticides known to linger in the atmosphere have been all but eliminated from North America’s Great Lakes region, a study finds. 'For once we can report something positive,' Marta Venier, an environmental chemist at Indiana University and coauthor of the study, told Environmental Health News. 'A few of the chemicals we’ve been measuring for a long time are well underway to being eliminated from the atmosphere.'" - Excerpt from Yale Environment 360
