Contaminated Water Found In 33 States Across The Country

More than six million Americans across 33 states are drinking water laced with unsafe levels of poisonous chemicals linked to cancer and other health problems, according to a new Harvard study released on Tuesday.

The study details how industrial sites have been contaminating ground water supplies with harmful chemicals for the last 60 years.

The most affected states are (in order): California, New Jersey, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, Georgia, Minnesota, Arizona, Massachusetts, and Illinois.

The news comes on the heels of the water crisis in Flint where thousands of children were exposed to water laced with lead.
