Garret posted about the problem of perchlorate contamination in water and milk over at Dangerousmeta, and a PR flack for the “Council on Water Quality” found his post and pasted a press release on the issue in his comments. Rather than deleting the press release, he wrote up a lengthy, well sourced, and well reasoned response. I’m linking so that anybody who Googles this issue will find the post and its comments, plus I find it interesting that responding to critics on weblogs is something that I wouldn’t have thought was happening yet. For what it’s worth, the Council on Water Quality is an industry funded organization. In other words, it’s an industry group representing business interests that pretends to be an activist group representing the views of regular people.
