Americans are dumber because of leaded gas - study shows. From 1951 to 1980, nearly every American child had unhealthy lead levels. Subscribe to Engineering Explained for more videos! - 🤍goo.gl/VZstk7 Recommended Books & Car Products - 🤍amzn.to/2BrekJm EE Shirts! - 🤍bit.ly/2BHsiuo We’re covering the infuriating story of leaded fuel. There are three main topics we need to cover: 1. We knew it was dangerous from the very beginning, yet used it for an entire century. We started off with ethanol, then decided to poisoned ourselves for a hundred years, then came back to using ethanol. 2. We’re STILL using it today. If you're near a local airport, you're likely breathing air with leaded fuel exhaust. 3. A new study indicates we’re dumber because of it. Like, all of us. Especially if you were born between 1951 and 1980 - three decades of incredible amounts of lead in children's bloodstreams.

I'm a child of the 70'ies, and I wanted to comment, but I forgot what I wanted to say, before I finished the comment.

Lead was also commonly added to paint until it was banned in 1978, and likely is still in houses built prior to its ban.

Perhaps there is a law firm that will undertake a class action lawsuit of huge proportions? Any lawyers watching this?

It's also taken us over 100 years to abandon our fragile pneumatic tires.

They were not wrong, they did by purpice so noboby can broke the molecules if the try to make 100 MPG carburator like charle pogue from winnipeg 1930 and tom ogle 1978 from Texas

On top of lead exposure, we're also adding fluoride (actually hydrofluorosilicic acid, usually purchased as toxic waste from China because it's cheaper than food grade sodium fluoride) to tap water in most parts of the country which don't already have concerning levels of natural fluoridation. Fluoride is also a neurotoxin, it only has very minor topical benefits to tooth enamel (brushing with fluoridated toothpaste is more than enough fluoride exposure for the minor benefit) while there is zero health benefit to actually ingesting it and far more reasons NOT to ingest fluoride. Recent studies are also finding fluoride as almost equally damaging to developing brains as lead is, and at nearly the same very low exposure levels. I also guarantee that the damage done to U.S. citizens by decades of lead exposure and excessive fluoridation will NEVER see the inside of a court room, nor will anyone be held accountable for it, because the financial repercussions of compensation for everyone affected would vastly exceed the taxes we're paying to continue to be poisoned. Great country!

Why in the world would you inject politics into the conversation? With a wink? With a condescending comment to attempt to soften it? Very good content, well done as usual, and then that. I’m sad.

That is something what can not be talked about, but needs to be talked about. Thank you for spreading so needed information to the world.

In my opinion that 100LL thing lasts so long because of beaurocracy and your country has way too much of that. We Europeans are much more in to ultralights (light sport as you call it) and rotax, so we pay for our motoroads and streets when we fly… because our beaurocrats also very not so intelligent: mostly narcisists and paranoids.

Fascinating world it is.

Ok, I heard the story, but I’m not furious. I am a little annoyed at hearing a rant instead a sober engineering analysis.

Which news channel are you talking about? CNN? They are the worst! Funny that we used to have journalism which would have rooted this out and exposed it for the public. Now that we don't have journalists, we don't have any checks and balances and these people can keep making us idiots.

Just pointing out the effect TV and computers have on Iq is way worse yet everyone has Netflix and a smart phone nevermind the harm consuming Monsanto seed produce which has been scientifically proven to not only lower your iq but also lower your life expectancy my point being don't go on a holier- than- thow rant when the subject doesn't mean dick in the grand scheme of things we've consumed lead for millennia it's going to happen no matter what we do because lead is a naturally occurring element in nature in multiple forms also if you have consumed any sugar free drinks or sweeteners you've consumed it directly and intentionally sweet and low in particular is a sugar of lead so yeah learn chemistry before you spew nonsense

And if I was born in those years and have a 156 Iq I never wanted to be any smarter so your totally wrong and you seem to want planes to fall out if the sky

Danny
2022-11-20 19:44:16

Then if totally right then explain why so many things were invented by peo]le in the years you say we were poisoned by lead ? Maybe flying cars or if you morons who hate lead and want the world to stop and go lead free I hope you fly on a plane that has a valve in its engine fail because thier was no one spec if lead in the gas or should millions who drive old car be having thier engines blow up because of no lead to cushion the valves
