A community poisoned. Rashes, hair loss and unexplained illnesses. Children exposed to lead. Development halted before it even had a chance. The future is dismal for many of the young ones.  Decreased IQ,  behavorial and cognitive problems and a range of other health issues lie ahead.   

It sounds like the makings of a horror movie, but this in fact is the reality of Flint, Michigan.
