Thanks, Centers for Disease Creation... from my WP email alert and to think I just finished showing a friend moments ago History International's The Crumbling of America about our failing infrastructure, saved on the DVR. Important Doc even with the global warming part and that jackass Meigs using it as a vehicle for street cred in the science sector after managing the Popular Mechanics hit piece on 9/11 researchers so long ago now.
...The water in almost 15,000 D.C. homes that were repaired during a massive effort to remove lead pipes may still be contaminated by dangerous levels of the metal, according to a report released Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
...The findings are a sharp reversal by the federal health agency, which initially claimed that they found no evidence that spikes in the level of lead in the water had harmed D.C. residents. A congressional inquiry concluded in May that the CDC knowingly used false data in making a “scientifically indefensible” claim that the water was safe to drink.
Glad I have my two Berkey's here in Washington, DeCeit. Extra lead is added to Capitol Hill, hence the finding and concern, otherwise no Washington Post alert, me thinks.
