Description

This "series focused on the epidemic of lead paint poisoning among Baltimore's children, using database analysis and previously unavailable records to establish that thousands of toddlers are being brain damaged in the city's slums because of a breakdown in housing code enforcement and inadequate public health safeguards." The Sun also used release forms to get at confidential medical records, and hired their own experts to test for environmental hazards.
