WASHINGTON (AFP) – A US environmental group has found that drinking water in 35 American cities contains hexavalent chromium, a probable carcinogen, The Washington Post reported Sunday.
The study by the Environmental Working Group -- the first nationwide analysis measuring the presence of the chemical in US water systems -- is to be made public on Monday, the daily reported.
The group found hexavalent chromium in the tap water of 31 out of 35 cities sampled.
MIDLAND — Beverly Crouch spent hundreds of dollars on chemicals last fall to try to get the green tinge out of her backyard pool. All for naught. It wasn’t until two months ago that she learned why the chemicals she put into her 13,000-gallon, above-ground pool wouldn’t clear the water. The green color came from well water contaminated with hexavalent chromium, a known human carcinogen.
...and chemical is infiltrating our water supplies...
...such as the ever-over-used FLUORIDE which is forced upon the populace...
...as well as known pharmaceuticals which keep 'mysteriously' showing up....

Btw, ignore the Boy George wannabe; I've seen him trolling on a number of threads and you know what they say about feeding the trolls ...
Absolutely! We are totally sabotaged with all the chemicals and GMO, etc. The media and medical-industrial complex promote a totally unhealthy way of eating.
