In reference to the article ?Rocket-Fueled River? by Cheryl Hogue, I would have to say my opinion of the pollution caused by perchlorate exposure is some what of an outrage. It seems careless to say the least that for so long this ion was being distributed in so many different parts going unnoticed. Although clean up for it is underway now, I strongly think that the government and surrounding companies that littered this material should provide more financial funding so that a more effective and quicker method of removing it could be used.
For one, if this ion is harmful to human life in any way, it would seem that those responsible would do their part in helping get rid of it. The article said that the amount that a human could have before it became a risk was still undecided. In my opinion, any amount is a potential danger and should be further looked into for an exact measurement. This substance is a risk to infants and those with thyroid problems. How can it be fair to them to not know how much will harm them and how much they can handle
