Well, maybe you shouldn't drink from the house faucet either, if you don't like eau de arsenic.
The Center for Public Integrity (winner of the Pulitzer Prize) has just pub lished a long, carefully-detailed account of how the EPA has been blocked f rom increasing the required safety standards for arsenic in drinking water on the basis of scientific research.
So, who did it? All the evidence from the Center's investigation pointed to one congressman: Mike Simpson of Idaho. Lobbying payoff...
The Center is one of the best "muckraker" sites, conducting investigations into wrong-doing in government and private enterprise. I support it and ur ge my fellow US gardeners to do likewise.
