The Punjab government has decided to begin a cancer registry programme. The move is believed to be in response to mounting evidence of pesticide-induced health disorders in the state that experienced the ‘green revolution' in the 1970s aided by large quantities of pesticide use.

Don't blame America, blame India. Your government could stop this in its tracks if it wanted too. I know its easier to put the blame on another country whom you have no say in, but the fact is its you that is letting this happen by passing the back to America and not accepting your (personal and national) responsibility on this issue.

Mussarraf overthrew an elected government and then you rewarded him by granting him money and he then becomes u.s.'s puppet.
America has sent over 10 billion dollars to a military dictator for over the last 8yrs
America supported Osama and then Saddam and now Mussarraf
see any trend there?
