    Most fertilizers 'contain too much uranium'

    Published: 20 Mar 12

    Fertilizers used in German gardens and farms contain up to 27 times the recommended levels of the radioactive and toxic heavy metal uranium, which easily reaches drinking water, according to a report on the ZDF television station.

    It has nothing to do with Pakistan! Water flows downwards from Indian Punjab into Pakistan, not the other way around! I'd rather the government look into the solutions to the problem.
