Only 47% say US drinking water is safe: Poll

Less than fifty percent of Americans are confident about the safety of their drinking water, according to a recent poll. The Associated Press-GfK poll released Saturday shows that only 47 percent of the US population think water flowing from their tap is safe.

Thirty-three percent said they are modestly confident and 18 percent said they weren’t very or at all confident, the poll found. People of color and low-income families were more likely to express doubts about the safety of their drinking water.

Forty percent of African-Americans polled and 28 percent of Hispanics compared to whites, 54, were not very confident in their water’s safety. Also, less than 40 percent of people, who earn less than $50,000, are very confident.

"Problems that surfaced in Flint, including Legionella and lead, disproportionately affect poor minority communities," said Marc Edwards, a water expert at Virginia Tech who played an important role in documenting the lead problem in Flint.

More than half of Americans believe the lead-contaminated water in Flint, Michigan is symptomatic of widespread problems in the US. "Of all the water systems in the nation, Flint can't be the only one that's faulty," said Elsbeth Jayne, 28, of Christiansburg, Virginia.

WHAT NEWS ISN'T REPORTING, IS THAT MICHIGAN IS THE BIRTHPLACE AND THE FIRST STATE TO BEGIN POISONING THE TAP WATER TO CHANGE THE MINDSET OF AMERICANS.

SAN DIEGO FOUGHT FOR DECADES AND FINALLY HAD TO ALLOW THE A SUBSTANCE THAT IS OUTLAWED AND CONSIDERED POISON TO BE PUT INTO ALL THE WATER THEY USE.

A CRIME AGAINST AMERICANS THAT COULD BANKRUPT EVERY CITY IF THEY ALL FILE LAWSUITS. DID YOU CONSENT TO HAVE POISON DUMPED INTO YOUR WATER?

ONE OF THE BIGGEST LIES AMERICANS HAVE EVER HAD TO LIVE WITH!
