Uranium found in two-thirds of U.S. water systems.

Important news from Columbia University:


Detectable levels of uranium found in two-thirds of U.S. water systems

UPI, Health Daily, April 8, 2022

Two-thirds of U.S. community water systems have detectable levels of uranium, and the highest levels are in Hispanic communities, according to a new study.

"Previous studies have found associations between chronic uranium exposure and increased risk of hypertension, cardiovascular disease, kidney damage and lung cancer at high levels of exposure," said researcher Anne Nigra, assistant professor of environmental health sciences at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health in New York City.

Even at low concentrations, uranium, a radioactive metal, is an important risk factor for chronic diseases, but there has been little research on chronic uranium exposure from tap water. About 90% of Americans rely on community water systems.

To learn more, Nigra's team analyzed U.S. Environmental Protection Agency records for 139,000 public water systems that serve 290 million people a year.

Between 2000 and 2011, 2.1% of those water systems had average annual uranium concentrations that exceeded EPA maximums. Uranium was detected in water systems 63% of the time during compliance monitoring.



Did anyone see this in their local paper or on the local broadcast news?

How did Eric Boehlert die?

Anyone have a link to the facts?

I understand the journalist was hit by a New Jersey commuter train while bicycling, Monday, April 4 around 10 p.m., but have not been able to find a police report, even a single eyewitness statement, nor any stills or video that shed light on how the tragedy actually happened.

As a citizen and compatriot, I need to know what happened. Boehlert was more than one of the good guys covering and analyzing the mass media. He told the truth, and particularly spelled out how Trump and the GOP get a pass, while Biden and the Democrats get the screw.

BIDEN: Hold the war criminals accountable.

"There's nothing less happening than major war crimes," Biden said in a speech to labor leaders, referring to the Ukrainian town of Bucha retaken from Russian forces, where bodies of civilians shot to death had been found.

"Responsible nations have to come together to hold these perpetrators accountable," he said. "And together with our allies and our partners, we're going to keep raising economic costs and ratchet up the pain for Putin."

Naturally, holding accountable includes Putin’s sinister network that operates Agent OO-Anus Orange, like the time Lvrov was in the Oval Office oiling the Machine. (Photo courtesy TASS.)

Trump and his allies actually protect and support a KGB mass murderer.

So glad Joseph R. Biden is President of the United States.

MF45's better be.

The traitor Donald John Trump, Sr. must stand trial in public, with the entire proceedings televised live for gavel-to-gavel coverage.

Upon conviction and sentencing, whether to imprisonment or corporal or capital punishment, it would also do good for the country to witness the entire penalty phase in real time. Like Mussolini and his mistress, images to etch on memory and history.

And Uncle Sam! Don’t hire the company that installed the video surveillance equipment at the Metropolitan Correctional Center to watch Jeffrey Epstein. Complete access is the least due We the People.

J. Edgar Hoover, Martha Mitchell, Minnie Pearl, and John Mitchell at a dinner honoring Martha on May 24, 1971. Hoover was under siege. On March 8, activists broke into an FBI office in Media, PA and stole thousands of pages of FBI documents that revealed not only surveillance of the Left, but criminal acts committed against it, including sabotage, arson, perjury, and worse, under a program called COINTELPRO. Within days documents were sent to the national media, underground newspapers, radical groups, several members of Congress, and individuals who were being watched and/or investigated. On March 24 John Mitchell issued an urgent plea to the press not to publish information from the documents. In April Senator Muskie strongly denounced domestic surveillance of activists and proposed a domestic intelligence review board. Rep. Hale Boggs called for Hoover’s resignation. FBI agent Mark Felt wrote that this event was “the turning point in the FBI’s image.”
