Too much lead in tap water’

Agence nationale de sécurité sanitaire de l’alimentation reveals new findings

The risk was found to be especially high in older buildings, and in areas with older distribution systems, the agency said and advised anyone whose homes are served by older water pipes to replace them as soon as possible.
