It's all Michael Moore's fault.

Wait. You still use lead pipes in 'Murica?!? Do you wanna be the second empire which sinks down in chaos and dumbness due to lead poisoning like the ancient romans?!?

Why does the government try to kill people to reduce the population, just stop making more people. Its morally and technically better to not make babys than kill what's already alive. Just suggesting the best options, in case we ever come to...thinning the herd.

1000 mg is 1 Kg. 4000 mg is 4 Kg. 1 Kg = 2.2 Lb. There is no way that that teaspoon held 4000 mg of lead! This equals 4 kg. That is close to 10 pounds! There is no way that a teaspoon filled with lead weighs 10 pounds.

So all of a sudden the lead pipes have been around for over 100 years are now killing far more people today ? I don't recall any mass lead deaths in the news, so why now ? I know ! We now measure how much lead we think is bad for you. All lead is bad. Let's scare the shit out of everyone.

I am a licensed operator in Michigan. Lead in piping is not a problem. The water in the flint river has a number of aggressive properties causing it to bond heartily with the lead in the piping. Once in the water, it requires chemical intervention to remove.

It's amusing how hard americunts try to turn their firstworld country into thirdworld shithole of hell, USA is already became second world country, same as China. China meanwhile work its hands out to become firstworld.

Symptoms are poor language skills, poor attention span. ADHD and autism have been steadily increasing. Were still poisoning our kids with lead and pesticides. Pesticides are detectable in our foods. Wonder if there is a correlation. Makes way more sense than vaccines causing autism. If you poison a life from the very womb, it could effect that brain very dramatically. All for money. So proud I'm going to die poor. At least I can say my hands are clean as well as my soul.

5:05 - _Even low-level exposure can lead to .... lower IQs, antisocial behaviour, and reduced attention span._ I wonder how much lead Trump and his supporters were exposed to.

wow, this is amazing. I just realised this is another thing USA has in common with the Roman empire. They both ingested large amounts of lead to their people. Probably not the thing to follow

I like how we look at total national profile so long as it supports our claim. Surely cyanide is good for you, look at how few people died from it around the nation. Cyanide substitutes are perfectly fine, it's what we put in Amaretto now. Here's what we need to do; sell concrete walls with lead sandwiched in between, and call it, the radio blocking privacy wall for your privacy room! Whatever raises the price of lead, wait a few months, you'll have people stealing lead pipes.

One more thing, people who care about kids tend to buy houses built after 1978, but how many of you check the year of construction when renting? Also, most public schools are built before 1978 and your kid eat, play and spend half a day there with little supervision. Look what paint industry morons in 1930-40 did to our kids. I didn't see they paid any repatriation.

Lead is everywhere! I absolutely have had as a carpenter been exposed to more than my fair share. As a young man who did a lot of roofing have personally cut, handled, and grinded so much lead flashing and got down off the roof and ate my lunch with lead all over my hands unable to do more than rinse with a hose.

TBH I think the danger of lead is over dramatized. As any fishermen would know, almost all weights and a lot of lures are made out of pure lead. And I haven't seen fisherman get cancer or lead poisoning from it even though we touch it on a daily basis. Yes if you consume it ,it'll probably be unhealthy but its relatively safe as long as your down syndrome kid doesn't eat it like candy. I myself probably touch it over 10,000 times easily. Tbh I think the people that said their kids have brain development issue because of lead in water is just blaming it with 0 evidence. Most likely their degenerate genes are the issue!

Nice John but I think you missed the big story. Lead in water or paint is a health hazard, but not as significant as the airborn dosage we get when leaded fuel is burned or a lead bullet is fired. The US quietly eliminated lead from fuel in autos knowing that it is absorbed 5-10 quicker when inhaled, which causes brain damage (especially in children). It's good we don't have it in regular gasoline anymore, but it's still a significant ingredient in AVGas (aviation fuel) and many solders. Of all the nasty things we ingest, lead is one of the most prevalent and dangerous, but in the 21st century most Americans only know about paint, which is a very unlikely source unless your kid is chewing on it. The "scandal" about lead paint is just a political move to make us believe China is supplying dangerous paint products. A person gets a bigger dose at the firing range or when fishing with lead weights. Surely one could make a case that people at the firing rage get dumber by lead inhalation...I mean, most people at the firing range definitely seem dumb. Could it be that law enforcement gets dumber every time they go the the range? Well lead causes brain damage and becomes airborn every time a lead bullet is shot.

Lead based paint is beyond common in cheap oil paint, sold mainly to younger/student artists. As proper oil paint is 5 times the price. They dont record it on their packaging. Hence how it gets into the west. Honestly, an old art teacher showed me a trick. Rub the tinniest bit of the paint between your forearm and your palm on the vein side. Wait 5-10 minutes and if your viens are black/purple its got lead in it. It's disgusting what has been so easily allowed to flow into the markets of countries which have "banned" lead based paint. Especially when it hits the youngsters and the students worse than anyone else.
