How Many People Got False Assurances from Faulty Lead Testing?

blood-1761832_1920.jpgThe FDA has just issued a warning that certain tests for lead in blood drawn from patients' veins since 2014 may have falsely assured those patients that they were not suffering from lead contamination when, in fact, they were. The suspect tests were those typically conducted in doctors' offices, and using a testing method associated with a company known as Magellan Diagnostics.

Flint Threatens to Evict Thousands for Failing to Pay for Lead-Poisoned Water

glass-of-water-252x300.jpgYes. You read that correctly. First, the State of Michigan and City of Flint took away Flint residents' clean water. Then they substituted lead-contaminated water. Now, the City of Flint has just sent notices to 8,000 Flint residents threatening that, if the residents don't pay for the lead-contaminated water, Flint may evict them from their homes. Government deliberately tries to hurt citizens, and then demands that they pay for the privilege. I don't know whether this awful behavior is explained by (more) racism directed to the (mostly African American) residents of Flint, or by the most clueless and callous government bureaucracy imaginable. Or both. For the moment, anyway, it doesn't matter. It needs to stop. And whoever had the idea to bill people for poisoned water needs to get fired.
