Garhwa: 15th August 2011
A nondescript hamlet of 70 Dalit families in Jharkhand’s Garhwa district has in almost every other house a person either crippled or bedridden. Medical prescriptions show they have fluorosis, a disease caused by drinking water with high fluoride content. At least 12 people have died of fluorosis in the last six years, claimed Mohan Ram, a community leader.
