Subject: [CPEO-MEF] "Greer" perchlorate study questioned
Key study on safety of chemical disputed
Ingredient in rocket fuel taints many Inland water supplies

Riverside Press-Enterprise (CA)
June 3, 2005

Five years ago, a research team recruited seven people to drink water laced with tiny amounts of a rocket-fuel chemical that has contaminated many Inland drinking-water supplies.

In sufficient doses, the chemical -- perchlorate -- can impair thyroid function and result in neurological impairment of fetuses and babies, metabolic disorders and other problems.

The researchers, backed by a grant from the industries that make and use perchlorate, concluded that the infinitesimal amounts in their test had no effect on the healthy adults who signed on for the two-week study.
