Finally, a new report says the presence of lead in Flint's water supply dramatically increased cases of fetal death and infertility.
David Slusky and Daniel Grossman - two economics professors from the University of Kansas - released their findings from a working paper on Wednesday, Sept. 20, after analyzing data and comparing Flint birth and death certificates with those issued in other Michigan cities in a several-year time period before Flint changed water sources and after its use of contaminated water in April 2014.
