I don't think the Environmental Worry Group was actually interested in "scientifically valid conclusions".
Maybe we can sue the governments providing this cancer out of existence like they do to private industry.

Distill. Not because of hexavalent chromium, but for the pill-sourced unregulated oestrogen that is turning boys into wimps.
Getting rid of whatever other crap is in there is a free bonus.

My water has “detectable” levels of mercury. However to detect it a sample needs to go to a lab for a series of tests to detect an amount that is so low as to be negligible.

“The Environmental Working Group is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to using the power of information to protect human health and the environment.”
Don’t believe it for a moment.
The chairman of the board of this wonderful, dedicated and - ahem - non-partisan group is none other than Drummond Pike, the founder and chief executive officer of Tides Network.
Remember the Tides Network? Fully funded by such people as Ter-ay-sah Heinz Kerry and George Soros?
I dunno about chromium, but my tap water is _loaded_ with chlorine lately. It’s thoroughly vile and undrinkable.

We need to get the dihydrogen monoxide out of our water!

(This post is not a statement of fact. It is merely a personal opinion -- or humor -- or both)
Pacific Gas and Electric, which released a toxic plume of hexavalent chromium 6 from a Hinkley-based natural gas pipeline station, paid a record $333 million to settle a class-action suit in 1996.
But the California Cancer Registry has now completed three studies that show cancer rates remained normal in from 1988 to 2008.

I’m concerned about the Dihydrogen Monoxide that comes out of my taps. I’ve heard it can kill people.
