Release the study on toxic chemicals in our water!

Dear MoveOn member,

I'm Miranda Carter of Food and Water Watch, and I started a petition to Scott Pruitt, Administrator of the EPA, Alex Azar, Secretary of Health and Human Services, and President Donald Trump, which says:

Immediately release the study from the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry about the health effects of PFOA and PFOS.

The public has a fundamental right to know about these toxic chemicals that are contaminating the drinking water of people across the country. It is inexcusable to suppress this information any longer, and further delays mean more danger to our families.

The White House, the EPA, and HHS have so far REFUSED to release a study on water contamination from toxic chemicals called PFOA and PFOS -- used to make non-stick Teflon. Existing studies have linked these chemicals to serious health effects, including cancer, liver and brain dysfunction, and development problems, and this comprehensive study is long overdue.

Right now, the EPA has ZERO rules on the books to protect communities from these dangerous chemicals.

This study remains unpublished -- because the Trump White House and the EPA think it's a "public relations nightmare."

Hundreds of communities and military bases across the country are contaminated with these toxic chemicals. Demand that this study be released!
