A man works in the chromium fields of Kanpur, an area that receives waste from nearby tannery factories. The city is notorious for having some of the country's worst pollution which is created by the local leathery tannery industry. Waste water laced with toxins, such as chromium, is discharged in local waterways and agricultural land which is used many residents who live in the nearby area. An array of health problems now afflict locals who have worked in the tanneries, or use the local water. Health effects have included cancers, mental health problems, child development issues and skin diseases.
