Tap water quality

EWG’s Anila Jacob, MD testified in the House about the dangerous effects that perchlorate, aka rocket fuel, could have on infants as a result of contaminated drinking water in many U.S. cities. When challenged by Illinois Congressman John Shimkus that the financial burden of cleaning up tap water would be too burdensome for corporate giants like Lockheed Martin, Dr. Jacob replied that Congress’s first concern ought to be the health of the nation’s children who are forced to drink rocket fuel in their tap water.

 Dr. Jacob appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America to explain the dangers of perchlorate turning up in our water supply. Watch the video clip here.
