The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released documentation on Monday June 6, which planned to allow radioactive contamination in drinking water at concentration levels far higher than permitted under the Safe Drinking Water Act.

Eco Watch has reported that the new guidance would approve radiation exposures equivalent to 250 chest X-rays a year.

What was proposed by the EPA Protective Action Guides (PAGS) would permit for all citizens of the US to drink water that is severely higher in radioactive levels than what is currently legal.

Dr. Catherine Thomasson, executive director of Physicians for Social Responsibility, stated

“Clean water is essential for health” she said “Just like lead; radiation when ingested in small amounts is very hazardous to our health. It is inconceivable that EPA could now quietly propose allowing enormous increases in radioactive contamination with no action to protect the public, even if concentrations are a thousand times higher than under the Safe Drinking Water Act.”
