Mario Cannavacciuolo (cq), a sheep herder, stands in front of an incinerator adjacent on his abandoned land in the country side outside Acerra, Italy, Thursday, July 1, 2010. The Cannavacciuolo family has been destroyed by illegal toxic waste disposal the government sponsored garbage incinerator. His flock of sheep, of about 3000, died due to dioxin contamination. His brother, Enzo Cannavacciuolo (cq), died shortly after, and tests show his body contained levels of dioxin, purins, and PCBs 30 times the amount allowed by the World Health Organization. The Cannavacciuolo family no longer earns money off the land which has been in their family for generations...PHOTO/ MATT NAGER
