5. Flint Water Caused 'Significantly Higher' Levels of Lead in Young Children
June 24, 2016

U.S. federal health officials have confirmed that young children in Flint, Michigan, had significantly higher levels of dangerous lead in their blood after the city switched its water supply from Detroit to the Flint River as a cost-cutting measure. The city switched its water supply in 2014 without ensuring that water from the Flint River had been treated with anti-corrosive agents, as required by law. It corroded the city's old water mains, turning drinking water brown because of iron contamination, and also leached lead from smaller pipes that carried water into homes. In all, ... (read more)
