    I think this is a shame, the people of Armenia not only have to worry about putting food in their families belly’s. but now have to cope with the cancer causing effect of albesto’s. what is the Armenian government doing about this? because if the government steps in this will save lives and reduce the healthcare cost of it’s citizen’s. are there any grass roots organization’s being formed to address this crisis to put pressure on the government?
