Good god. Apparently the ‘Erin Brockovich’ carcinogen is still floating around in the water we drink and clean ourselves with, threatening our health and that of those around us.
The cancer-causing industrial chemical, hexavalent chromium, is a popular industrial compound, now finding a second life in our groundwater and our bodies. According to the interactive map, Cleveland and Oklahoma counties have some of the highest concentrations of the chemical in their public water supplies. Moral of the story: drink Fiji?
