Would You Like Some Radiation With Your Water?

A matter of risk: Radiation, drinking water and deception by KHOU in Houston, TX.

An excerpt: "For the past year the KHOU 11 News I-Team has been investigating the quality of the tap water in Texas. What they found was surprising: That many of the states' communities have a real problem with radioactive contamination in their local drinking water. However, the team also discovered that many of those consuming it didn't know they were also being exposed to a health risk." A 5-part, one-hour special by KHOU 11 News' Investigative Reporter Mark Greenblatt:
