A *New* Epidemic? Really?

On our Facebook page today – a follower (Lori Campbell) read the tag-line for our Kickstarter campaign for the film: “Why are “ADD”, “ADHD” & “Autism” approaching epidemic levels in the U.S.? Find out @MisLEADMovie 1 in 3 U.S. kids has been poisoned.” Lori then posed this question: “So, if lead were the cause of […]

A School For Avi

I thought I finally found a school for Avi—really I did. While we are technically “Home Schooling” him, it is among the most difficult things I have ever done (mostly because of the “negotiations” with him that are increasingly required to get him into the frame of mind in which he is ready to learn […]

To Toss or Not To Toss?

I often get asked “Well, now that we know it contains bio-available lead, what are we supposed to do with it? Do we just put it in the trash?  Or do we have to dispose of it as toxic waste?” This is both a moral and ethical question—one that calls into question our laws, our […]

Community Film Screenings

MisLEAD is a documentary feature film about the hidden epidemic of childhood lead poisoning in America today. Few in the U.S. realize that 1 in 3 children in our country have likely had an unsafe level of lead in their blood in their life-time; most families do not test their children and are not aware of […]
