Mountains of rat-infested uncollected garbage are piling up in Los Angeles and experts are afraid that they may start an epidemic of disease that could have been prevented.

The trash has been abandoned by the city and attracts rats that can carry fleas and spread diseases like typhus.

A report from NBC4-Los Angeles found that business owners and residents are angry at the city for allowing the garbage to pile up and threaten their health.

Dr. Jeffrey Klausner, UCLA infectious disease specialist, says that the garbage problem in LA is among the worst he's seen even in third world countries.
