As far as I can tell, the Missouri River valley from Kansas to South Dakota is a place where toxins settle and stay. I would suggest avoiding it.
To me, the Kansas City area seemed worse than Omaha in terms of the amount of mold toxins in the outside air. Council Bluffs and Sioux City seemed worse than Kansas City. They have a different kind of toxin that has a sting to it. (to me)
This was before the flooding of summer 2011. Now the valley is full of houses that have been sitting in water all summer. Yikes.

I thought the Missouri River near Kansas City felt particularly bad to me, just driving over it.
All the rivers in Montana, including the Missouri, felt okay though. When I was in Missoula, a town that felt a lot like Cincinnati to me in terms of its age and buildings, there was a guy fly fishing in the river! And that made sense to me, because the river seemed clean.
Midwestern rivers all seem pretty bad though. Jeri thinks that the Ohio River is a really nasty spot in Wheeling, for instance.
Apparently we've used the rivers as dumping grounds, and they're not very safe places at all.
I recently heard about a bunch of people swimming the Ohio River in Cincinnati. This does not sound like a good idea for anyone to do, no matter what their health! Especially since Cincinnati has a problem with storm water causing overflows and allowing sewage to get into that river.
