Description

"Imagine what would happen if a toxic substance rained down on Rhode Island and poisoned nearly 3,000 children in a single year . . . Year after year, thousands of children are poisoned here by lead paint wearing off older houses. But there is no groundswell of outrage. And most people seem unaware that lead is even a problem. . . The Providence Journal examines the young lives of some of lead paint's victims- lives dramatically limited, and in one New Hampshire case, ended by a poison most of their parents were never taught to fear. The six-part series will explore how lead poisoning is thwarting brain development in so many of our young people- a loss that drains talent and wealth from our entire community."
