Thirsty Thursday – Ground water in Pakistan is being tested and studies are showing high levels of arsenic. This means that 50-60 million people living in the Indus valley, which runs through much of eastern Pakistan, are drinking water which very likely exceeds their government's safe level. While not every well is affected, or as high as the rest, each well needs to be tested to see whether the drinking water is toxic or not.
