'dead zone' is misleading .. it's an area of vastly increased risk of many disorders .. cancers , birth defects .. etc.

The question is which is the larger contributor to the 'thriving' ... reducing our other human negative presence there we had previously been making .. or the negative of the health effects of the mess we made before we left ??

-0 + 6 = 6
-2 + 10 = 8

The -2 is still a negative.
net 8 > net 6 even with the -2 included.
