ATLANTA — CBS Atlanta has uncovered a toxic chemical seeping into our water supplies, into your home, and the water you and your family drink every single day.

Hexavalent chromium, made famous in the movie” Erin Brockovich,” is a the deadly chemical that has been linked to leukemia, stomach cancer, and liver and kidney damage.

We tested the water across metro Atlanta to check for hexavalent chromium, also known as chromium 6. Five of the seven water supplies we tested fail to meet some of the nation’s most stringent standards. We found two, eight, even 14 times the proposed limits of hexavalent chromium in the water you’re drinking. It’s in your kids’ schools, and in your home.

“I worry about what kind of effect it is having on my kids. Are they getting sick and I don’t even know it?” Krissy Castillo asked.Castillo’s kids may be getting sick. They live in an area where we found the water is polluted with this cancer-causing poison.

The seven area water supplies we tested span from Fulton County to Gwinnett, Clayton, DeKalb and Cobb counties.

And all this while we are finding out right after they tell us the drinking water we have consumed all our lives contains a poison called FLUORIDE.  But we have been told since we all were tiny little kids that Fluoride is good for you.  Until they decide to tell the truth about what it is and what they have known all along that it does.
