On 14 July 2018 The New York Times reported:
San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico: Maria del Carmen Abadia lives in one of Mexico's rainiest regions, but she has running water only once every two days. When it does trickle from her tap, the water is so heavily chlorinated, she said, it's undrinkable. Potable water is increasingly scarce in San Cristobal de las Casas, a picturesque mountain town in the southeastern state of Chiapas where some neighborhoods have running water just a few times a week, and many households are forced to buy extra water from tanker trucks. .... Climate change, scientists say, has also played a role in the failure of artesian wells that sustained San Cristobal for generations. 'It doesn't rain like it used to,' said Jesus Carmona, a biochemist at the local Ecosur scientific research center, which is affiliated with the Mexican government. 'Almost every day, day and night, it used to rain.'
Global Good News service views this news as the failure of modern health and government systems.
Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
In a country that is among the world's top consumers of sugary drinks, Chiapas is a champion: Residents of San Cristobal and the lush highlands that envelop the city drink on average more than two liters, or more than half a gallon, of soda a day.
The effect on public health has been devastating.
. . . The [Coca-Cola] plant is owned by Femsa, a food and beverage behemoth that owns the rights to bottle and sell Coca-Cola throughout Mexico and much of the rest of Latin America. Femsa is one of Mexico's most powerful companies; a former chief executive of Coca-Cola in Mexico, Vicente Fox, was the country's president from 2000 to 2006.
