MSM Admits US Drinking Water Heavily Contaminated With Toxic ‘Forever Chemicals’

A new study by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) tested drinking water in dozens of cities across America found concentrations of PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) contaminants in water supplies at all but one out of 44 locations tested. PFAS are also called ‘forever chemicals’ because many do not break down in the environment, instead building up in the blood and organs over time. EWG scientists say they believe it is likely all major US water supplies contain PFAS. The EPA issued a non-enforceable advisory for PFOA and PFOS in drinking water of 70 ppt [parts per trillion], but independent studies have recommended a safe level for PFAS in drinking water of 1 ppt. EWG recommends in-home water filtration systems to remove possible fluorinated contaminants.

Drinking water across the United States is heavily contaminated with fluorinated ‘forever chemicals’ at levels far higher than previously thought, according to a new study.

A wide variety of mainstream news outlets have cited a new report by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) which found concentrations of PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) contaminants in water supplies at all but one out of 44 locations tested.

“New laboratory tests commissioned by EWG have for the first time found the toxic fluorinated chemicals known as PFAS in the drinking water of dozens of U.S. cities, including major metropolitan areas,” the report states.

“The results confirm that the number of Americans exposed to PFAS from contaminated tap water has been dramatically underestimated by previous studies, both from the Environmental Protection Agency and EWG’s own research.”

No surprise to anyone who does not instinctively trust the predators-that-be who call themselves “government”.
