Toxic City Infographic

The title of the article is “Philly’s shame: City ignores thousands of poisoned kids” and was written by Barbara Walker, Wendy Ruderman, and Dylan Purcell / Staff Writers Photos and video by Jessica Griffin / Staff Photographer. This article was about how Led is a major issue in Philadelphia. I didn’t know it was this bad until I read the article. The article basically was highlighting that the lead poisoning was coming from chipped paint. The chipped paint in the homes built before 1978 had lead paint in them. They were banned because of the damage it can cause which is exactly what's happening right now. Led poisoning can cause permanent brain issues, affecting development, I.Q, and can cause behavioral issues. I wonder if there could be a program or something to fix all of the paints in the home. I also wonder if their is anyway to mask or control the amount of lead exposure coming from the chipped paint.
