Below is a link to an article from Dr. Bellinger in the New England Journal of Medicine. Dr. Bellinger is one of the foremost researchers on the effects of lead upon children in the country. He eloquently and plainly discusses why lead is dangerous to children in light of the lead in water tragedy of Flint, Michigan. An understanding of the dangers of lead, and how the government and public authorities failed the children of Flint is explained in this article. Recommended reading for anyone wanting to know the issues surrounding the Flint, Michigan story.  http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMp1601013
