Michigan is looking into requiring all infants and toddlers be tested for lead.
It’s all because of Flint’s water crisis.
This comes as a proactive step to control children’s exposure to the neurotoxin.
A state board suggests screening all children for lead by the time they turn one, and again between ages two and three.
Right now, lead testing is only required for low-income kids in the Medicaid or WIC programs.
When Flint switched its water source to the Flint River it was untreated, and leached lead out of the aging pipes.
