[UNVERIFIED CONTENT] Around the city of Naples many illegal dumps have been created by the Mafia to illegally dispose industrial and toxic wastes from northern Italy and northern Europe. The frequent burning of this waste spreads toxic substances - including dioxin - into the atmosphere and lands around and is causing hundreds of cases of cancer. For this reason this area has been called 'Terra dei fuochi' (Land of Fires or Dead Triangle).
