Posted: 3 years ago John Oliver explains the harms of lead in its various forms throughout America today. One of the best pieces from Last Week Tonight I've seen.

I'd also appreciate opinions on what sort of reform you think should be passed. The episode supports nationwide major restrictions on lead, and there are two justifications: (1) reduces suffering and deaths of multiple people, and (2) it's cost-productive (e.g. with increases in productivity). So do you think such reform is justified?

He also talks -- though not in much detail -- about the issue in Flint, Michigan, with regards to lead pipes, and similar issues in other places all over the U.S.
Just because you're magic doesn't mean you aren't real.
