Pollution: an infectious disease

April 23rd, 2012
public_health  [html]
I saw this poster in a middle school this weekend: [1]
Example of contaminated water/pollution Example of air pollution
  1. Fish lives in contaminated water
  2. Human eats fish
  3. High fives friend
  4. People die. Spreads and spreads.
  5. Stop pollution Japan
  1. Breathes in [smoke from "Japan pollution company" factory]
  2. Cough cough cough
  3. [Huge group of people] cough!
  4. Spreads!
Apparently they're doing a unit on Japan [2] including some on pollution and public heath, but some kids are a little confused.


[1] I was there for a dance event.

[2] There were other posters about Japan, including a set of Venn diagrams with circles for what American kids have, Japanese kids have, and both. There was a lot of variation in what they put down, but every single one mentioned that American kids have five days of school a week while Japanese ones have six. Pretty important to kids.
