Only imagine what Lake Erie could have cured!

Living in Brooklyn for 21 years, I heard often about the Horror that was the Gowanus Canal. And, admittedly, there were times (many, many times) when I'd walk over the canal's Union Street Bridge holding my breath because the aroma was... well... you supply the synonyms for gag-inducing.

Today I learned that this wonder of bad technology and pollution might actually cure diseases.

Still won't get people to gentrify the area surrounding the canal though.
