CDC covered up high lead levels in D.C.


rawstory.com

An investigation by Rebecca Renner of Salon has revealed that the Center for Disease Control(CDC) had withheld evidence of dangerously high levels. An influential CDC report released in 2004 (and since cited by officials in Seattle to calm nervous parents) downplayed the role that chloramination played in the D.C. lead crisis, saying that it "might have contributed a small increase in blood lead levels." However, according to Renner, "the results of thousands of blood tests that measured lead contamination in children were missing from the report, potentially skewing the findings and undermining public health. Further, the CDC discovered in 2007 that many young children living in D.C. homes with lead pipes were poisoned by drinking water and suffered ill effects. Parents wondered whether the water could have caused speech and balance problems, difficulty with learning, and hyperactivity. Yet the health agency did not publicize the new findings or alert public health authorities in D.C. or other federal agencies that regulate lead, such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or Housing and Urban Development."

This is unreal...

The agency that is supposed to keep us safe from poisoning is complicit in covering up data showing that a water treatment was LEADING TO dangerous levels of lead!

Looks like these guys are right on par with the nazi-like FDA in terms of serving vested interests. And this same organization is the one behind the "missing PLAGUE-INFESTED rodents" that have just "disappeared" from their facilities on more than one occasion over the past few years...

There is something borderlining on sinister with this agency. We need to keep close tabs on them IMO.
