Locked down[edit]

As of June 21, 2011, this article is tagged as disputed in terms of both neutrality and accuracy, yet there is no discussion. Why does it appear to be locked down?— Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.49.32.170 (talk) 02:04, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

The article was never locked down. The tags were removed on 7 September 2011, and quite right to. Drive-by tagging is an absolute pest. HairyWombat 04:30, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Environmental Working Group[edit]

This section is misleading and this is a biased interest group. The EWG papers cited in this section offer misleading information in an obvious attempt at fear-mongering with shaky information.

An editor with more experience than I should look into whether this section even belongs in the article at all.

agreed, i did a little to work on this but I think Cyanoplex, you perhpas could tag the article as needing a medical expert.

Consistency, Sources[edit]

In its present state, I find this article confusing. There does not appear to be a medical reference for, essentially, health risk versus concentration. The legal cases seem to hem and haw around the matter, but law does not require scientific rigor, they only need to convince a jury (or not even that, in the case of settlement). This page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hexavalent_chromium#Hinkley gives a worst-case measurement of 580 ppb, but with no reference. Perhaps this is as much a call for references on that page, too. Alternately, if the reason for the hemming and hawing, is that there is no medical conclusion on what concentration is statistically significant, then it might be nice to note this in the article. 2605:A000:140A:400C:8446:6CD3:2987:7E06 (talk) 14:10, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

clarity[edit]

The article insinuates that PG&E falsified the retraction and funded subsequent research finding that chromium is not toxic. I don't know the history but in either case the article needs to be more explicit and detailed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 100.35.32.24 (talk) 00:00, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
