WOW that's very sad. How did things get to this point? What went wrong?
Watch the video... lead poisoning. The chat piles on the surface contain lead & other toxic heavy metals. The towns people were becoming sick and the children mentally incapacitated. Lead poisoning is a serious thing. It is one big toxic mess there.WOW that's very sad. How did things get to this point? What went wrong?
Oh OK, I misunderstood you (imagine that, on the internet ). The damaging effect of lead on children wasn't brought to light until the early 1970's in the USA. Lead poisoning continues to be a problem around the world, especially in developing countries. Look at the lead in the water problems currently in Flint, Michigan. Different source but still a global problem. In the case of Picher keep in mind the lead mined there made bullets to win wars so the government had a reason to try to keep a lid on it as long as they possibly could I'm sure.YEH TJ I did watch it mate, thats why i find it hard to understand how the people didnt stop this from happening. anyway it is not what should have happened. Sorry mate i get angry when i see stuff like this allowed to be swept under the carpet. Someone is responsible for the decisions made.
Ok i feel better now...I'll go back in my hole
