Teaser for current doc I am working on, about new seaweed combination drug to hit the murky backwaters of Lima. Difficult to know how it began. It is believed that the Paracas culture, South of Lima, first used seaweed in ceremonies. The high toxicity levels in the Lima Ocean open more questions about this drug. Below a report by Al-Jazeera on levels of sewage pollution.
