(Would poison fall under the "disease" forum?)
I was reading this article: www.pbs.org...
The U.S government began reducing the lead gas content [in gasoline] in 1972 and completely banned it in 1996.
Why? Why would it take 24 years? Honestly, if I was President, I would have put a moratorium on all gasoline-infused with lead pollution. Ah, but good
ole' Nixon was President.
But the dangers of lead poisoning were not unknown to us in the 1920s, who in their right minds would ever think it a good idea to add lead to
gasoline? Oh, that's right, your precious rich and elite of the world (that the each of you still worship like the false idols they are).
In 2012, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lowered the acceptable blood lead level to a 5 micrograms/dl, a mere fraction of the
acceptable levels only 30 years earlier. In reality, even this seemingly “low” amount represents too high an acceptable level in a child’s body
and brain. The only safe lead level is no lead.
Yes, the only safe lead level is NO lead. When will this world learn that lead is not something to play with.
Let us wake up. Under capitalism, We the People are ignored. Lead poisoning will continue and many other horrors, like pesticides in our food and
GMOs, until we put an end to such a corrupt economic system. As Muldar would say, the truth is out there, but money tells us a different truth.
