VIDEO: Lead is not just a problem in Flint

Watch this video on YouTube:

Editors's Note: for over a decade, I worked with concerned citizens in Kellogg, Idaho, one of dozens of communities across the US plagued with huge stockpiles of lead slag and lead dust. In Kellogg's case, lead was mined nearby and smelted in town. 

The result was an extraordinarily high concentration that caused generations of children to grow into adulthood with terrible deficits in IQ, cognitive ability, nerve function, etc. Kellogg should have been bought out and evacuated 30 years ago, but instead there have been endless delays, distractions and denials.  - Will Collette
