In case you missed it last week, the Erin Brockovich chemical has been found in drinking water ALL ACROSS AMERICA. The dangers of chromium-6 were brought to light in 1993. It's now 23 years later and the government has failed to limit the amounts found in our drinking water.
In my area of Nashville, it was found as high as .167 when the safe level is .02. That's a HUGE amount considering that this chemical has been known to cause cancer even in small amounts. Check chromium-6 levels in your area.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must be held accountable and pressured to set regulations for our national safety. Here's a quick and easy way to make your voice heard. Please take 15 seconds to sign this petition from the Environmental Working Group.
This is scary stuff and you may be wondering how you can remove this cancer-causing chemical from your drinking water.
