Tragedy of the Flint Michigan Contamination
Lead In The Water – Is It Time To Freak-Out?
by John Parks Trowbridge M. D., FACAM
The simple answer is … it’s not so simple. But you must pay attention to what is happening to you and your family to be able to respond accordingly.
Over 27,000 innocent children in Flint, Michigan, have been exposed to startlingly high levels of lead in their city water supply – sometimes 13,000 times the concentration found in nearby localities – for many months, without any warning, even without early official acknowledgment when the problem was identified. The city emergency manager had changed its water supply but failed to comply with Federal and State standards, with dire consequences. They switched back after 18 months to the earlier, safer water source, when Flint declared a State of Emergency. Now city dwellers are left with corrosive toxics leaching from their pipes for who knows how long.
So how can you really know “what is happening”? Read More or come to the Library to check our first print issue.
