"Fracking chemicals" found in PA water supply says NYT

Sigh. "Fracking" chemicals are non toxic organic substances that are in the homes of many consumers. Ingredients in detergents and chewing gum for example. So finding traces of those chemicals in a homeowners tap once in a while is not surprising. It's also vanishing unlikely to have anything to do with Fracking which any geophysicist or petroleum engineer could explain. If the naive, easily manipulate dears at the NYT wanted to know, that is.

Update: someone who read the piece points out:

They found parts per trillion in drinking water of a chemical which is commonly used in (latex) paint and cosmetics.

Gee there wouldn't be any reason for paint or cosmetics to be lying around a house would there?
