Industrialization, Culture and the Environment (Farmin)

UMBETIN, ISRAEL - JANUARY 10: A Bedouin Arab girl walks barefoot across a bridge over the heavily polluted Nahal Hebron stream, laden with raw sewage, toxic industrial waste and dumped rubbish, as it passes January 10, 2007 through the unrecognized Bedouin Arab village of Umbatin in Israel's Negev desert. Living on the edge of modern Israeli society in unrecognized villages amongst the industrial parks and near the Jewish communities on land they lay claim to, many of the Negev Bedouins suffer from malignant, genetic and respiratory diseases. They also have the highest infant mortality rate in Israel. (Photo by David Silverman/Getty Images) Industrialization Threatens Traditional Bedouin Lifestyle. Photographer.
