Excerpt
Excerpt: Historically, the countries of the Balkan region obeyed the imperatives to develop heavy industry, factory farming, and militarization, all of which have led to pollution of the regions air, water, and soil by heavy metals, radioactivity, pesticides, and fertilizers. Yet the benefits of modernization and technological development, such as a higher standard of living and progressive health care, have largely passed the region by. In this sense, the countries of the Balkan region experience the worst of both worlds: they must suffer the diseases of both industrialization and rural poverty.
