Corporations always lie when things go wrong. They buy politicians in the hope
that they can prevent investigation. They succeed most of the time until something
hideous goes wrong. That's where we are right now.
Common Dreams gives this information but I am sure it will not be on the news tonight
on tv.

What's the problem? These frackers will come out with a purification system for every household that will clean the chemicals from the water. For a mear 50.00 a month you will be able to have water that is almost 'virtually" as clean as the water you are using now.

From the article:

'A toxic chemical used in the controversial drilling practice known as fracking has been detected in the drinking-water supply of Pennsylvania homeowners, according to a paper published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS)....'

It bears mentioning that the chemical (2-butoxyethanol) is approved by the FDA as a food additive.
