According to Physicians for Social Responsibility, "Perchlorate has been linked to thyroid problems in pregnant women, newborns and young children. Not regulating this harmful chemical in our drinking water is unacceptable."
" The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has refused to set a drinking-water standard for perchlorate. The EPA is now asking for public comment on the issue."
" As the Washington Post pointed out last month, this rule has been meddled with extensively by the White House in order to remove some of the data highlighting the risks associated with the chemical."
Please take a moment and follow these easy steps to send your own simple comments to the EPA telling them to protect our water from perchlorate contamination.
