Description

A Post-Standard investigation reveals that in Syracuse, at least 48 children since 1995 were poisoned by lead in homes that government inspectors previously had declared safe. "In each case, a child has been poisoned earlier in the home, the landlord made repairs, the county declared the property safe, tenants returned and second child was poisoned," Perez reports. Small children and pregnant women are the two risk groups most vulnerable to lead poisoning.
