The Sierra Club on its website is inviting supporters to join in sending in a letter to PepsiCo to urge the company not to contaminate water from oil-bearing tar sands.
The letter addressed to PepsiCo CEO, Indra Nooyi, draws attention to the alarming incidence of cancer in areas where water is affected by tar sands. The letter reads:
“Local indigenous communities have reported unusually high rates of rare types of cancer associated with these toxins, along with fish with severe deformities.”
Last year in October, RTCC published a story about cancer warning arising from carcinogens created by Canada’s oil, gas, and tar sands.
