13,000 severe cases of Legionnaires Disease per year in america

5 in flint? Seem wholey unrelated to this "Fake News" that is called the Flint Water "Crisis".

These victims were only victims of their own poverty - specifically the rotten pipes inside their house. Test after test shows that the public utility water was clean... it wasn't until after the privately done test with skewed data came out did liberals start trying to scare the public. Meanwhile people who live in a house built in the last 80 years are unaffected. Note: All Republicans being indicted. Note: No way to trace back to negligence of city water utility. Note: Democrats demanding a $1 Billion be spent on a non-needed water utility system.

Thanks. I was sold on this being an exposed corner that was cut to skim some cash. Like they don't get enough in kickbacks from the government building contracts to begin with. As a rule of thumb any story about politicians gaining at the cost of people's lives, my first thought is probably true.

If it is true. It should be murder charges. Same goes for big pharma. When they put drugs and devices out there they know will maim and kill people but they sell it anyway. That needs to be a murder charge for every person dead or the practice will just continue.

A good portion of big pharma's drugs end up in the water supply also.

So you're saying it's the landlords who are at fault and not the redirect of water from the river?

Or could it also involve the water infrastructure, which needs to be updated along with the housing pipes?

I don't doubt you, it just brings about other questions to consider.

privately owned pipes are not the responsibly of the public utility, also they are legally inaccessible by them. I suppose if you are renting a hovel and living in abject squalor, you don't have the cash to sue them. The """"slight"""" evidence of lead contamination from lead water mains is neglibable imo because the high flow rate in water mains precludes the stagnant condition required for lead leaching. This is entirely unrelated to the reported cases of Legionnaires disease which is a bacteria that cannot live in chlorinated/flourinated water for long periods of time. It is contracted through aspiration by water droplets into the lung - like would happen in a shower, possibly connected to an old water heater or mildew/moisture in the shower head.

here's a more detailed rant I made on this that discusses the water testing and the skewed data from a clearly biased liberal testing group who made an immediate money grab.

Those people should have bought water filters. But I bet they made jokes about not ever needing them instead.

I've got 3 Brita filter jugs. Can't be too safe.
