GET THE FACTS
Perchlorate is a naturally occurring and manufactured substance consisting primarily of oxygen atoms.
Perchlorate is safe at environmental levels, and the reference dose of 0.0007 mg per kg per day is safe for all populations.
No study has shown that perchlorate causes adverse effects on human health.
“Health Implications of Perchlorate Ingestion” — a report from the National Research Council’s Committee to Assess the Health Implications of Perchlorate — stands as the single most authoritative and comprehensive examination of perchlorate and human health ever conducted.
