I-Team: Draft of federal report finds radiation widespread in Houston water VIDEO
“Let me translate that report in my view: Houston has a problem with its water supply,” said City Council Member C.O. “Brad” Bradford, who is also the former chief of police in Houston.
“There’s radiation in Houston’s water supplies across the Houston area that’s completely unacceptable. It is dangerous,” he said.
Further, the EPA also says in the federal register that, “For alpha particles, it has been shown experimentally that a single alpha passing through a cell is sufficient to induce a mutational event.”
Multiple toxicologists and radiation experts KHOU spoke with agree with the EPA and Bradford, that any amount of radiation exposure in drinking water increases your risk for cancer.
LISTEN to this report!!!
Let’s recap the news from the past couple of days:
89% of US cities have hexavalent chromium in tap water
EPA, Powell Barnett Newsletter Agree: Hydraulic fracturing causes gas to penetrate water zone.
Add to that something we already know:
Radioactive nuclides in hydraulic fracturing flowback
Radioactive contamination widespread in Barnett Shale
Natural Gas Production Causing Water Bankruptcy
FACT: The World Bank says that by 2030 demand for water will outstrip supply by 40%…
The suffering behind that is absolutely unspeakable.
