I have seen many posts and references on various threads dealing with pollution, especially from “v” and others.
It would be great if knolwedgeable people such they, and others, could enlighten us ‘ordinary folk’ who have taken up residence in Taiwan what the health issues are with regard to pollution, toxins, water purity, heavy metals, swimming, buying ‘clean’ foods,travelling by scooter, raising kids, etc. etc. Perhaps on one thread.
I’m not an alarmist, it is just that I know that by living here I am exposed to a greater level of pollution and environmental harm. As I intend to stay for a while, I feel it is important to know what additional risks I/my family is exposed to, and be able to take concrete steps to reduce (perhaps not ever eliminate) these.
Practical things like - what type of bottled water should I use, and is a filter better? Should I avoid pork, or certain vegetables that have been irrigated with polluted water, etc.
I know this is the open forum, perhaps this was better posted in Living in Taiwan, I’ll leave it up to administrators and others to decide. Whatever, it is an issue that directly effects all of us.
