Bayview Hunters Point residents live next to an abandoned Navy shipyard,
a sewage waste facility, a PG&E power plant and many other toxic waste
sites including one superfund site.
This neighborhood houses low-income families that are exposed to pollution,
poverty, asthma and cancer.
Women under 50 in Hunters Point have twice the rate of breast cancer
as women in the rest of the city.
Most impacted are the 12,000 residents who live East of Third Street.
