Thom talks about the doctor who studied lead poisoning in children, giving much of our understanding of the true damage it does and who recently died. But cities like Chicago, Flint, DC, and MANY others have unacceptable levels of lead in their water, and precious little is being done to fix it. And our kids are the ones who pay the price.
