More than six million people in the US drink and use water that is contaminated with deadly toxins, a new study reveals.

Life-threatening concentrations of a carcinogenic man-made chemical – normally used to fight fire, insulate pipes, and stain-proof furniture – have been found in public water tanks across America.

The most at-risk states are (in order): California, New Jersey, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, Georgia, Minnesota, Arizona, Massachusetts, and Illinois.

The Harvard University study, published on Tuesday, warns the figures are likely woeful underestimates, since government data does not account for a third of the country – and therefore omits around 100 million people.
