    Thousands of tonnes of coal ash containing Mercury, Arsenic and lead mixed in the soil of the water table in these cancer cluster areas and mysteriously none of these known carcinogenic materials are in the food or water. Thats impossible. This is a massive coverup. No one wants to be held liable for the 1000s of beautiful people dying and thats why the funding is either pitiful or nonexistent from the State. Thats why the company spokesperson lied about those nonexistent safety studies. No levels of toxic materials are good for your health as they add to the burden of our already loaded and suppressed immune system.

    As a member of the Mooresville Community for many years now, there are many of us eager to help support this initiative and push for continued research, education and publicity. This documentary and coverage and its number of views (in a small window of time) shows the power of our community. I wish there was an added link to represent ways to get involved, donate and/or receive additional information. If that information is available, please provide so that it can be distributed throughout our communities.

    You might, on camera, ask the Duke spokesperson to demonstrate her point. Bring a 16 ounce glass. Pour 8 ounces of clear bottled water into it. Add four ounces of powered coal ash you — not Duke — dig out of a coal ash pile. Stir it. Ask her to drink it. Then do it again. And again. Until she is full. To demonstrate its safety. Seriously. Ask her to do it. On camera.

    Duke is right, however: a very high exposure rate over a period of time. How long has the coal ash been there, how long has coal been ignited at the plant before enhanced air quality filtering was put in place, etc.? Thus people nearby could have inhaled it and been exposed both through groundwater and lake water. Lots of investigating needs to take place pronto.

    The Duke spokesperson's "bottle of water" explanation is off the charts: a human can't drink 50 bottles of water at one time–the volume would kill them. Come on!

    Has anyone tested the lake water and lake bottom. Plug samples of the bottom are vital. Is there a buildup of toxins.

    I thought it was good overall but I think you really missed a great opportunity for some call to action at the end.

    -contacts to email a pre written letter asking for funding at the state level
    -places to donate
    -subscribe to XYZ for updates

    It left people feeling helpless as if we should all sell our houses. Please let me know if you can add one or all of these to your website or a follow up airing.

    Also- anyone considered the nuclear plant in Huntersville/Cornelius? Seems like the next logical discussion.

    They need to test the fish.

    When coal ash dust is inhaled, high levels of cadmium is absorbed into the body. … Arsenic: When high amounts of arsenic is inhaled or ingested through coal ash waste, diseases such as bladder cancer, skin cancer, kidney cancer and lung cancer can develop.

    An amazing investigation.

    The key words: THERE'S BEEN NO RESEARCH

    Duke Energy was wrong.

  13. Fred T

    The Duke Energy spokesperson used the old "drinking water" twist to diffuse the answer focus. And was wrong in saying coal ash is no more toxic than clean/purified drinking water. Coal ash is deadly, and contains all sorts of carcinogens. I am amazed that the coal plant's coal ash piles are unlined–thus allowed during heavy rains to seep carcinogens into the ground water and adjacent lake water. Re-focus on the coal ash. Re-focus on the coal ash. Re-focus on the coal ash. By the way, I first learned of the "drinking water" flip when asking a Virginia Beach city doctor whose job it was to warn the public of health-threatening conditions about the heavy sprays of the pesticide Toxaphene by crop dusters in the city. He told me Toxaphene was safe and said "I could drink an 8-ounce glass of Toxaphene right now and it wouldn't hurt me." I then called the EPA and spoke with the agency's leading Toxaphene specialist who told me to quote her as she said "Eight ounces of Toxaphene would kill a bull elephant." I put both quotes in the story and shared it with 100,000+ readers…

    Radiation is the most probable cause of thyroid cancer. Cell phones with data and wifi always on and stuck to your ear. Wifi routers in the home can affect your animals.

  15. Be Bop

    Why aren't they considering wifi and cell towers or those huge electrical power lines? A cell phone is held to the areas, the eye and thyroid, that are being affected.

    Correction: There is an additional $100,000 for further study of OM in the budget and I'm proud to have worked with Rep. Christy Clark to secure this funding. It is currently caught up in the budget negotiations standoff, but we are hopeful that this funding will eventually be available to continue the research. NC Senator Natasha Marcus.

    How frequently did these people go in the lake? Wondering if there have been occasional toxic releases from time to time?
