IEER's Arjun Makhijani is a featured expert in this new investigative report, "A Matter of Risk: Radiation, Drinking Water, and Deception," by KHOU-TV Houston concerning drinking water in Texas. The problems may affect other states as well. (September 3, 2011)

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."
