2014年出版的《铅之战》(Le-d Wars)共同作者大卫·罗斯纳(David Rosner)在书中回顾了战后铅中毒的历史。他表示,种族主义一直是有关当局容忍铅中毒现象的原因。罗斯纳指出,铅工业协会在战后甚至想将错误归咎于黑人父母纵容孩子吃油漆。 叶特尔希望通过其研究,证明隐藏的结构性种族主义的危险性,以及忽视肤色影响性的公关健康筛检方式只会加剧问题。 目前,美国儿科学会等机构只建议对生活在旧屋中,或属于特定经济层级的儿童进行血铅筛检。叶特尔认为,有关当局若不正视种族因素,便无法解决地方性歧视问题。"如果不正视'身为黑人'就是一个主要风险因素,地方、州和联邦政府的回应会让许多...

What Others say

Asia is the world's largest and most populous continent. It covers 8.6% of the Earth's total surface area (or 29.4% of its land area) and, with over 4 billion people, it contains more than 60% of the world's current human population. Chiefly in the eastern and northern hemispheres, Asia is traditionally defined as part of the landmass of Eurasia—with the western portion of the latter occupied by Europe—lying east of the Suez Canal, east of the Ural Mountains, and south of the Caucasus Mountains and the Caspian and Black Seas. It is bounded on the east by the Pacific Ocean, on the south by the Indian Ocean, and on the north by the Arctic Ocean. Given its size and diversity, Asia—a toponym dating back to classical antiquity—is more a cultural concept incorporating a number of regions and peoples than a homogeneous physical entity. The history of Asia can be seen as the distinct histories of several peripheral coastal regions: East Asia, South Asia, and the Middle East, linked by the interior mass of the Central Asian steppes. The coastal periphery was home to some of the world's earliest known civilizations, each of them developing around fertile river valleys. The civilizations in Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley, and the Huanghe shared many similarities. These civilizations may well have exchanged technologies and ideas such as mathematics and the wheel. Other innovations, such as writing, seem to have been developed individually in each area. Cities, states, and empires developed in these lowlands.
