WORST CITY - La Oroya, Peru

La Oroya, Peru

Population: 35,209

Worst Feature: Lead Contamination

Best Feature: Toxic Clouds block sun, reducing exposure to UV.


Another city on the list of world’s dirtiest and most toxic places; thanks to lead and other metal smelters the population of La Oroya has been subject to unregulated and uncontrolled toxic emissions for decades.

We have all heard of the problems of lead poisoning in children even in this country, that has banned the use of lead based paint in homes since the ‘70’s The lead levels in the blood of nearly 100% of the children of this city are 10x the amount they should be.

The city also suffers from sulphur dioxide emissions, cadmium and arsenic poisoning of the soil and groundwater, which has killed the surrounding vegetation.

While a Toxic cloud hangs over the city poisoning 99% of its residents, it does have a nice view of the Andes, and at least the smelting plant keeps people employed, which according to its owners and the government is their best arguments to keeps them form shutting it down.



La Oroya, Peru . . .

. . . where toxic contamination can reduce a rodent to rubble in less than 20 seconds.
