Is this really surprising? No. Is it sad and wrong? Yes. Thanks Cal

If you'd ask them, I bet the agrochemical companies would say, "We didn't know that drinking water laced with arsenic and cadmium caused kidney disease." Perhaps they should start drinking the same water to prove to themselves that it does.
