Nearly 22 Cancer-Causing Chemicals are Present in Tap Water: US

  • A recent survey conducted in the US says that chemicals above legal limits in the tap water pose a high risk of cancer. In fact, nearly 100,000 cancer cases in the United States might have occurred due to such chemicals. Journal Heliyon, which has published the report, investigated nearly 50,000 water systems across the country and detected the "presence of 22 cancer-causing chemicals". Surprisingly, these water systems are well regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency, however, the chemicals are still found in tap waters in varying degrees.
