SPECIAL REPORT – Leaded gas: A toxic tale


In the Winter 2014 and Spring 2014 quarters, students in the Stanford Journalism Program worked with a team of faculty advisors, reporters and programmers to adapt a long-form investigative story into a new digital story format.

“Leaded Gas: A Toxic Tale” is an adaptation of an award-winning print article that tells the story of how major corporate interests turned a blind eye to health risks from leaded gasoline from the 1920s through the 1980s. As a result, lead poisoned workers, contaminated the environment and adversely affected the health of people around the world.
