Women who were exposed to the horrendously high levels of lead in their drinking water in Flint, Mich., suffered from fertility issues that led to fewer pregnancies and a higher number of fetal deaths, a new study reviewing health records from the city and the state has revealed.
According to the Detroit Free Press, fertility rates dropped by 12 percent among women in Flint, while fetal death rates rose by a staggering 58 percent after April 2014, research conducted by assistant professors and health economists David Slusky (Kansas University) and Daniel Grossman (West Virginia University) found.
Lead, as the Free Press notes, can damage the nervous system of the still-developing, vulnerable fetus. Exposure can cause miscarriages and stillbirths. Men and women can also be left infertile as a result of exposure.

From the Free Press:

There is no safe level of lead in the body, but the impacts of lead are considered most severe on the developing brains and nervous systems of children and fetuses. It can lead to lower intelligence, behavioral problems and diminished life achievement, according to researchers. And the damage is irreversible; it cannot be undone.

The water crisis in #Flint, #Michigan, may have reduced fertility rates and increased miscarriages and fetal deaths, according to new research exploring one impact of #leadpoisoning on the population.

The number of fetal deaths ― pregnancies that lasted longer than 20 weeks but didn’t result in a live birth ― increased 58 percent from 2014 to 2016, when the city had higher amounts of lead in its water, researchers found. The number of live births declined 12 percent.

Overall, “between 198 and 276 more children would have been born had Flint not enacted the switch in water,” according to the working paper by Daniel Grossman of West #VirginiaUniversity and David Slusky of the #UniversityofKansas. Using other Michigan cities for comparison, the pair looked at fertility and fetal death rates in Flint before and after the city’s water became contaminated with lead. “It’s a tragic but unintentionally well-set-up natural experiment,” Slusky said in an interview.

Flint is one of many #American cities that installed lead water pipes in the 20th century, despite dangers including child brain damage and a range of health problems. The deadly neurotoxin has since been banned from most household applications, but millions of lead water service lines are still in use around the country. Rather than replace them, federal law requires cities to add chemicals to their water so it forms a protective coating on the inside of the pipes, thereby preventing corrosion that allows lead particles to leach into people’s drinking water. Flint failed to treat its water correctly after changing its water source to the Flint River in 2014.

Most of the effects of leaded water can only be observed through population-level analysis. As water utilities love to point out, even if somebody has documented higher lead levels in his or her blood, that person can’t definitively say what caused the increase. It could have been the water, but it also could have been dust from old paint or lead-contaminated dirt. 🖐🏾More in comments👇🏾#FlintWaterCrisis

In the spring of 1994, Casey Bellieson was raising her boys in the Lafitte housing projects in Treme, near the epicenter of a crime wave in New Orleans.​ ​She ​and her family ​w​ere​ ​ready​ for the violence that touches on urban areas in the summer, but what ​they​ w​eren​'t, and couldn't have been, prepared for, was the ​discovery that both of her children were lead-poisoned from the housing project and surrounding areas -- and likely had been for years. "The Poisoned Generation" is the story of a decades-long lead-poisoning lawsuit in New Orleans, and how the toxin destroys black families and communities alike. ​Read Vann Newkirk's feature online, and at the link in our bio. 🎨: Jacob Myrick (@jacob.myrick)

Shout out to @kaepernick7 mom for giving us such a wonderful human being and having such a lighthearted response to ignorance. Understand instead of fighting to #endmassincarceration or prevent #leadpoisoning or demand #educationisafundamentalright ( please read the Gary B. v Snyder and the William Penn School District v. Pennsylvania Department of Education briefs) or stop #redlining or release #patternsandpractices to stop #policebrutality or question #brokenwindowspolicing or stand up for #banthebox or change #assistance requirements or even meet with the #CBC #45 has chosen to demean black activists in the NFL who are not only protesting but also fighting to make this world a better place through their philanthropic works. @mosesbread72 just had a gun pointed to his head and instead of trying to learn and understand via a #teachablemoment #45 uses the presidential stage to call for firing them into silence. #ikneelwithkap #ikneelwithkaepernick #injusticeanywhereisathreattojusticeeverywhere #1stamendmentisourstoo

Soil Scientist Marg genuinely thought she might die today in the field due to the heat, if the lead poisoning didn't take her first. Excited to provide this resident with their soil quality results following a shoddy reclamation job by the EPA.

Decay in the forest is natural, it evokes a sense of cyclical rejuvenation; decay in the city is putrid, dark, and endless. Civilization is killing you, culture is not your friend. #josephcampbell #leadpoisoning #getmetothemountains @thatchrisryan #unpopularpost
