On 4 December 2017 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported:
Eduardo Baltazar is the youngest person in the tiny Mexican village of Agua Caliente to have a kidney transplant, undergoing the life-saving surgery a month shy of his 13th birthday. The boy is one of many victims of a health crisis in the western state of Jalisco that environmental experts are linking to water and air pollution, despite denials by the government. A University of Guadalajara investigation into the 950 residents of Agua Caliente on the shores of Lake Chapala has confirmed what locals have known for years -- chronic kidney disease has reached epidemic levels and is hitting children hardest. From the smog-coated capital to polluted lakeside villages, agricultural and industrial pollution and poor regulation have sickened communities across Mexico, say campaigners.
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern health and business systems.

More than half of schoolchildren in the village have damaged kidneys, and only one in six demonstrates healthy cognitive development, university investigators say. The research has found significant attention and memory deficits among local children, according to leading investigator Aaron Peregrina. Many also struggle with fine motor skills, used for drawing, writing, and eating.
