Vinyl Chloride – A Lesser Known But Equally Dangerous Contaminant

Vinyl chloride is one of many potential contaminants that can leak into groundwater sources and make its way into the home. Being exposed to its effects over long periods of time can lead to liver cancer and cause health defects and issues during pregnancy. The chemical is critical to PVC materials, and thus is very common around plastic factories and can even be found in tobacco. 

Due to the chemical’s relationship with popular items, there is a higher chance of finding vinyl chloride-contaminated waters than many other dangerous chemicals. Protection from such contaminants is fortunately handled by local government monitoring, though if you have your own private well it is essential to have labs out to test your water supply, especially if there are nearby plastic factories. Water contaminants are a danger that one must remain aware of, and taking proper safety precautions can save lives.
