Earlier this year YHL wrote about the mysterious uranium found in Punjab’s groundwater. Now an investigation by Guardian’s Observer seems to suggest the uranium source is fly ash from Punjab’s coal fired power stations. It took a South African scientist Carin Smit, a German Laboratory, and a dedicated Dr Pritpal Singh, who runs the Faridkot clinic for special kids to blow the lid on Punjab’s poisoned kids.

Meanwhile the Department of Atomic Energy says the Uranium levels are ‘normal’ and Dr. Carin Smit challenges the department for suppressing the information for the past six years.
