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.

Fun Fact: Europeans, soon after the "discovery" of the Americas and for about 200 years, thought tomatoes were poisonous because people would eat them and drop dead in the following days. As it turns out, the tomatoes weren't the problem. Guess what their dishes were made from: pewter, which was often mixed with high quantities of lead. Tomatoes are acidic, so their juice would dissolve the superficial layers of plates and mix every bite with a bit of lead. Another sure proof that correlation does not mean causation...

I wonder if a recent increase in autism is caused by an increase in consumption of lead because autism sounds a lot like what he was describing.
Rezareth (2 месяца назад)
Um, maybe I am just ignorant, but... Could you please explain to me in what way?^^'' Especially since there is at least one form of autism that causes HIGHER IQs and lingual abilities on average (Asperger's) and since a very common trait among autists is the ability to focus completely on something of interest. Considering that my psychologist and psychology teacher both said that the reason for the apparent "spreading" of autism is merely the greater capacity for recognizing it in people and that it is a genetical developmental disorder which influences the... well, development of someone's neurostructure, I don't really see how lead-poisoning could cause it. But maybe I'm overlooking something, haha. I would love to expand my knowledge.

Politicians don't give two shits about children being poisoned. In fact, it works to their advantage. Between lead poisoning, Common Core, big pharma, GMO's and the entertainment industry, they're dumbing us up at an alarming rate.

A few years ago the Providence Water Supply Board went bonkers replacing main lines and feeders - but left the lead pipes directly connecting to homes in place. You could pay to have that removed and replaced. Or you can just attach a water filter that strips out lead to the kitchen faucet. Much cheaper that way. And regards lead paint - I worked at the RI AG's office when the state sued lead paint producers. They got them to pay for remediation of lead. That was pretty damned good.
