Overview

How would you feel to learn that your drinking water had lead in it? This metal isn't uncommon, but consuming high amounts of it can have disastrous effects on human development. It can cause many issues, including muscle paralysis, swelling in the brain, kidney failure, and even death. The effects are especially dangerous to children, causing an interruption of development that can make for all sorts of issues in adulthood.

If you'd lived in Flint, Michigan in 2014, these might be some of the issues you'd be worried about. But today, after colossal government failures and coverups, and with the help of Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, the city finally has safe drinking water again.

In her book What the Eyes Don't See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City Dr. Mona tells all the dirty details and how she stood up to the corrosion in the government to win for her patients and the city of Flint.

"If we stop believing that government can protect our public welfare and keep all children safe, not just the privileged ones, what do we have left? Who are we as a people, a society, a country, and a civilization?"
