Abstract: 

A promotional video for The Lead Wars. The Child is the Canary is an internet and DVD public health outreach tool about an environmental justice issue that remains the largest environmental health problem for children in the U.S. today: lead paint poisoning. With the tobacco settlement as a precedent, the lead industry today faces public accountability as it never has before.
