    LOS ANGELES - A type of chromium highlighted in the film
    "Erin Brockovich" causes cancer in lab animals when they
    drink it in water, and it could be harmful to people, the
    U.S. National Institutes of Health said on Wednesday.

    Hexavalent chromium, also called chromium 6, already has
    been shown to cause lung cancer when inhaled and is
    controlled by the Environmental Protection Agency as well as
    by states.
