THE TRUTH ABOUT GOLD

Gold mining is a fantastically dirty business. There are about 15 million small-scale miners who use mercury to extract the gold from the ore. The United Nations has declared mercury one of the biggest threats to the future of our planet.

The vapors are hazardous, they travel long distances, cause irreversible damage to the environment, enter food sources, bio-accumulate in animals and result in severe harm to human health, including the nervous, digestive and immune systems. The worst part is that 38% of mercury emissions on earth come from these miners.

As the source of the gold in the jewelry you are wearing right now, it’s clearly a major factor in what the UN called a “worldwide crisis.”
