Toxic City Infographic: Juniata Park

The article surprised me because I was unaware that Philadelphia had a lead problem. My research into Juniata Park backed up the article's statement that lead poisoning is most common in Philadelphia's poorest neighborhoods. I don't think it is right that people living in poverty have to then deal with the possible exposure to lead. It is clear that landlords don't care to update the homes they are renting out because it saves them money. Many people in Juniata park are living in homes that could cause lead poisoning. Children of Juniata Park not only are be subjected to lead in their homes but at school too. It is unfair that not only adults but children to have to be in places that are unsafe for them because of their social status.
