RT America on Feb 1, 2020

On the show this week, Chris Hedges talks to author Seth Siegel about his new book: Troubled Water: What’s Wrong with What We Drink. Siegel explains how our drinking water got contaminated, what the US government does and doesn’t regulate, what the contaminants could be doing to us, and what we can do to make our drinking water safe.
