Bruna Gambardella (cq), sits in the patio at her home in Marigliano, Italy, June 9, 2010. Gambardella, has experienced endometriosis and a weakened immune system due to high levels of PCBs accumulated in ground water and produce found in Marigliano. In 2008, Antonino Vassallo, a member of the Camorra, confessed to dumping toxic waste into the countryside around the provinces of Naples and Caserta. Gambardella has turned to organic farms to avoid eating local produce and has noticed some relief of health symptoms and a rise in energy. ..PHOTO/ MATT NAGER
