Industrial Lead Poisoning in Los Angeles: Anatomy of a Public Health Failure

Dear MFN colleagues,

Here is a link to a new article about “silos” in government agencies that exacerbated exposure of children, residents and workers to lead from the Exide battery recycling facility in southern California.  Authors are Jill Johnston, who now heads our community outreach and engagement program at the University of Southern CA’s environmental health science centers and I.  Other attendees at last month’s MFN Conference (mark! Lopez, Angelo Logan, NRDC lawyers, Felipe Aguirre, CBE, and more) have all been actively involved in the Exide issue.
