Prof. David Rosner, Expert on Lead Poisoning, Speaks With The Baltimore Sun

In light of lawsuits against East Baltimore pediatric hospital Kennedy Krieger, which allegedly exposed children to toxic levels of lead paint in the 1990s, Bioethics professor David Rosner spoke with The Baltimore Sun about the historical context of the issue.

"The studies [on childhood lead poisoning] were launched at 'a terrible time,'' recalled David Rosner, a professor at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health and co-author of a 2013 book examining the nation's struggle to deal with childhood lead poisoning."

Rosner's book, co-written with CUNY professor Gerald Markowitz, is called Lead Wars: The Politics of Science and the Fate of America's Children.
