Something Sickening in the Tap Water

Jan 18, 2010

The EPA has looked the other way while about 50 million people in the U.S. have been drinking tap water that violated the “Safe Drinking Water Act,” according to an analysis of drinking water violations since 2004 in the nation’s largest water systems.

This same EPA has allowed 316 chemical pollutants in tap water. Arsenic, chromium and uranium are among the cancer-causing substances contaminating numerous water systems above the limits considered safe.

The current administrator of the EPA blames the previous administrator. And the next one will blame her! There’s one thing the EPA is good at: passing the buck!
