Among the 17 million people exposed to a combination of over 107 contaminants, 9.2 million were exposed to the barium, which seeps into water from drilling and mining runoff as well as erosion on natural deposits. Of these, 25,000 were exposed to amounts of barium that exceeded health limits.

Over 11 million Floridians also may have consumed radium-226, a radioactive element found around uranium deposits that can potentially cause cancer, in their water. And 11,113 people were exposed to excessive amounts of it.
