'Erin Brockovich' of China says in spite of government vow to address pollution, her 'cancer village' still a killer
from CBS News
Wei Dongying has been called the Erin Brockovich of China. She says cancer rates in her home of Wuli Village have spiked because of pollution. Chemical and textile factories opened in Wuli, in the early 1990s, and today some 300 textile facilities line its main estuary. Once a prosperous fishing village, residents say Wuli has become one of China's hundreds of "cancer villages."
