Health effects of uranium in your drinking water.
“The USGS estimates that 76% of the state has a 50% or more probability for detectable concentrations of uranium in groundwater.”
Consuming elevated levels of uranium can have detrimental health effects. Prolonged exposure may lead to kidney damage, an increased risk of cancer, and potential developmental and reproductive issues. Uranium’s weak radioactivity can also pose radiation exposure risks. While low levels are generally safe, it’s crucial to monitor and address uranium contamination in water sources to mitigate these health risks and ensure safe water consumption for both immediate and long-term well-being.
