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/
