Mainstream media accounts are failing to mention the accumulative nature of exposure to the types of contaminants found in rainwater samples. While levels of some contaminants currently found are within the Environmental Protection Agency’s “safe” limits, repeated exposure to these levels of toxicity through the skin and inhalation of airborne contaminants following a rainstorm could build up these levels rather quickly in the human body.
