Summary The Environmental Protection Agency and many states ignored or downplayed the health threat posed by toxic chemicals that vaporize from groundwater and enter homes. The formula the EPA used to assess the ganger is demonstrably inaccurate. Colorado, having failed to address such problems in the past, now is one of the few states that ignores the inadequate EPA guidelines and tests individual homes."
