Lead: The Problem Goes Much Deeper Than Flint

Many children in Flint are still at risk of brain damage and vascular problems.  A comprehensive detection and treatment program has yet to be formulated.  Recently, the Cleveland Chief of Public Affairs revealed that 507 homes in Cleveland were at high risk from lead-based paint.  Lead is present throughout the environment and especially in the food supply.  Lead does not stay in the blood for more than a few days.  It is stored in the bone and brain.  Thus to detect levels of this very toxic metal, a challenge test is required.  But the government stubbornly refuses to accept such tests as appropriate.  If present in the body, chelation therapy is necessary to remove it.  Wake up, America!  Our future is at risk.
