My old middle school had some disgusting bullshit since late 2018. There would be some roaches crawling around and it's not always the problem because it's being handle by eliminating them. What's mostly the problem is what's going down in the cafeteria. I never trusted the small bags of sliced apples. My best friend never ate the apples either but she sensed a strong smell into the bags. It had an alcohol smell and a few other strong smells. Almost all of the bags of sliced apples had them. And the school doesn't do anything about it. The burger i never wanted to eat after the big drama. My friend was feeling sick and he told me not to eat the burger. He told me to check my burger and mine was fine. But my best friend had hers worse. When she lifted the bun, the meat was still raw and abit bubbly. There was also something small and moving out of the meat. It made me wanna not eat any of the foods they serve to the students. They never handle the situation. They only tell them "oh don't eat it". And the last thing I want to say is the water fountain. There was some that had a fainted color. But there was one in gym class that looked brown and yellow mixed together. I felt disgusted and I couldn't trust of what's around the school because they never fixed that one water fountain in gym class after they said they were going to fix it. I always hear the lies they say when everything is gonna be fine. Honestly it's not. I'm glad I graduated and going to my first freshman year. Hopefully things will improve..

It's 2019 and we're at a level of tech where children are casually being poisoned... What the hell went so wrong? It is terrifying to imagine that we are less healthy now than years ago. That the mindset of the people in charge has corrupted to such a degree that this has been allowed.

This was actually one of the most informative and impactful deep dives I've watched thus far. Thank you guys.

i am still amazed by the fact , that u cannot drink from the tap . and have to buy water bottles for everything that uses water, things like food and water are mandatory , i live in the netherlands . statistics show that we are worldwide the best in the way we treat water , transport water, and hold off water, so just because we got water covered , we save alot of money , and deal less damage to nature , because buying water in bottles most of the time is just not worth it. we can drink tap water. water in my country in a 1 liter bottle cost us 5 cents, while in most other country's its way more expensive .sometimes up too , 5 dollars for just water, which is in my opinion insane , and not only drinking is your problem. taking a shower. pools, water for animals. agriculture, everything u want or need that uses water is basically a risk . my friend once say'd to me, america is the number 1 second world country. reasoning behind it . 1. guns 2. water 3. economics 4. crime 5. murder, 6. education level. 7. gap between rich and poor. 8. healthcare 9. this is just a fun fact but, (more people know about kim kardashian , then there own country , 10. GANGS & corruption. all this in the so called greatest country in the world, while all this is not present in my country, and we are one of the smallest country in the world. liked your video ,

Witches are taking out people`s souls and demons control the masses.See these videos by Win Worley,The Fragmented soul,Loosing spirits of God,his mass deliverance videos.See the video Routing demons by John Echardt.Part of Jesus`ministry was casting out unclean spirits(demons) as in the book of Acts,KJV.If you believe in Jesus Christ,REPENT.Learn to break off generational curses.Learn spiritual warfare and deliverance.Pray this,let my body reject every poison in the name of Jesus.Let my body organs be flushed by the blood of Jesus,in the name of Jesus.See the video deliverance from autism by Brother Carlos.Every single disorder is a combo of generational curses from God,for the sins of the Fathers,and or witchcraft spells and curses and demonic oppression.The real word of God(the king James bible) is health to your flesh,body,soul and spirit.Man shall not live by bread alone,but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God.See all videos by Win Worley,Derek Prince,and John EChardt.

Fun stuff lemme tell ya. My school’s water was tested and some of the water fountains’ lead contents were 27 times higher than what is considered “safe.” I blame my and only my school for my idiocy.

I have been diagnosed with ADHD by multiple physicians and experts despite having no family history of the disorder. Stories like this make me wonder if my ADHD was caused by environmental factors instead of genetic ones and that terrifies me.

I live in North Carolina and now I see why the water in school fountains taste that weird.

Why bother spending the money to protect students from lead when they'll just get shot anyway?

I’m Just thinking about all the water fountains I drank out of lol

then other people wonder why people don't drink our water anymore, that is why almost everyone buys bottled water now, not saying it's way better, but it's a lot better than what a lot of us have in our homes..

It's infuriating to see friends post online that Flint still hasn't been fixed, even though the levels are back to where they were originally before it all started. Is it fully clean, no. But like mentioned in the video, there are areas around the US that are worse. Way worse. But not many mention them because they're not as popular as Flint.

Rant over.

My Schools is 39 years old, almost 40!!! The water taste like metal and looks silver, but nah well just build another school because screw yall, keep in mind that the school I go to is the biggest school on WA State so we have the most students and cant even give us the bare minimum of water?

I live in Maryland and I went to elementary school about 15 minutes from DC. It was a known thing thankfully in the 90’s that we were not to drink the water from the water fountains at school. Some kids still would if no one was looking, but it was kind of a thing of shame. Like eww, you’re gonna drink from that dirty water fountain? I think we were more concerned about other people’s, “cooties” than the water itself. But still! Good for us!

MAYBE YOU SHOULD CHECK YOUR FACTS BECAUSE I THOUGHT THE FLINT WATER LEVELS YOU'RE REFERENCING WERE FAULTY BECAUSE THEY WERE FLUSHED BEFORE THE TEST

This comment is really late, but my school was tested positive for lead. What my school did was put some of those water coolers with the 5 gallon jugs for kids to fill and refill water. There are only about 10 in my school and i cant imagine it's too expensive
