Troubled Water
Troubled Water: What's Wrong with What We Drink | Seth M. Siegel
4 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
New York Times bestselling author Seth M. Siegel shows how our drinking water got contaminated, what it may be doing to us, and what we must do to make it safe. If you thought Americas drinking water problems started and ended in Flint, Michigan, think again. From big cities and suburbs to the rural heartland, chemicals linked to cancer, heart disease, obesity, birth defects, and lowered IQ routinely spill from our taps. Many are to blame: the EPA, Congress, a bipartisan coalition of powerful governors and mayors, chemical companies, and drinking water utilitieseven NASA and the Pentagon. Meanwhile, the bottled water industry has been fanning our fears about tap water, but bottled water is often no safer. The tragedy is that existing technologies could launch a new age of clean, healthy, and safe tap water for only a few dollars a week per person. Scrupulously researched, Troubled Water is full of shocking stories about contaminated water found throughout the country and about the everyday heroes who have successfully forced changes in the quality and safety of our drinking water. And it concludes with what America must do to reverse decades of neglect and play-it-safe inaction by government at all levels in order to keep our most precious resource safe.

This was a very informative book about some of the contaminants that can be in our drinking water. Each chapter in this book focuses on either a comtaininant or the laws and organizations that impact our drinking water. It is important to understand the issues surrounding our water and to ensure we understand what is in our drinking water.

Started Reading this insightful book about what contaminants are in our drinking water. This will be my second to last book for #NFNov

Update: so I originally pitched this awesome event with the promise that whoever read or watched the most non fiction would get a 25.00 giftcard to Bookriot Store, well they no longer have giftcards... Weird. So @Clwojick and I talked and we have decided to do two 25.00 Amazon Gift Cards!
