Letter to ACSH regarding Brockovich s attempted comeback

Following our coverage last week of glorified paralegal and environmental activist Erin Brockovich’s attempts to revive the hexavalent chromium/cancer link in Hinkley, California — despite strong evidence to the contrary, ACSH ally Marjorie Peters sent us a letter of praise:

Dear Dr. Whelan, Dr. Ross, and everyone,
I was so glad to see [John] Stossel's show last night. I am sure that the [American Council on Science and Health] had everything to do with Erin Brokovich's appearance. He let her talk, but pointed out the great fact that cancer incidence in the area was below the expected average. I believe he defused her somewhat, but, of course, reality did not impinge upon her consciousness. Thank you for all your great work.
