POISONOUS CHEMICAL TOXINS IN YOUR DRINKING WATER: THE CHEMICAL INDUSTRY, THE EPA AND CONFLICT OF INTERESTS http://www.pbs.org/newshour/multimedia/epa-corporate/
Washington Roll Call By Jeanne Rizzo: "Now that I’ve seen the draft legislation from the House, it’s clear that the reams of testimony recommending increased protections from toxic chemicals to improve public health were ignored in favor of promoting the chemical industry’s wish list for less regulation and accountability. It’s time Congress finally stands up to the powerful chemical industry lobby." http://www.rollcall.com/news/new_rules_for_chemicals_needed_to_protect_health_commentary-232195-1.html

TOXIC CHEMICALS IN YOUR DRINKING WATER
In 2011, the Environmental Protection Agency was poised to cite evidence of cancer risks in hexavalent chromium, a chemical found in tap water, a step almost certain to trigger stricter drinking-water standards to prevent new cancers and deaths.
Ten months later, the EPA reversed itself, quietly posting a notice on the Internet that it was pushing back the release of its findings for at least four more years. Environmentalists were stunned at the reason: The agency would wait for the results of new studies costing $4 million and paid for by the American Chemistry Council.
More than 70 million Americans drink traces of chromium every day, according to the Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit research organization.
And now, more than a decade after the film "Erin Brockovich", EPA scientists cite “clear evidence” that the chemical compound, also known as chromium (VI), can cause cancer.
The story of chromium (VI), full of twists and turns, offers a case study in how the Obama administration has failed to shield science at the EPA from industry influence. Companies with a stake in chromium have borrowed from the Big Tobacco playbook, using science to create doubt... http://www.pbs.org/newshour/multimedia/epa-corporate/

UNSAFE: THE TRUTH BEHIND EVERYDAY CHEMICALS
They contribute to disease and are linked to conditions such as asthma, autism, ADHD, diabetes, cancers, infertility, cognitive disorders, obesity, reproductive disorders and birth defects. Earth Focus looks at endocrine disruptors, ubiquitous chemicals that affect development, metabolism, fertility and intelligence at extremely low doses and at what measures could be taken to better ensure public safety.
