Post your data in the table provided at the link below. Analyze Your Data
Evaluate Did all your sources agree on the health risk of the chemical or heavy metal?
Analyze all your sources for possible bias. Are some sources more reliable than others?
Explain how the health risk differs for adults and children.
Identify the sources of the heavy metals in your area. Are the heavy metals still being deposited in your area? Conclude and Apply
Analyze Results Were the same substances found to be health risks in other parts of the country? From the data at the link below, try to predict what chem- icals or heavy metals are health risks in different parts of the country.
Determine what information you think is the most important for the public to be aware of.
Explain what could be done to decrease the risk of the health problems you identified.
