About Lead

 

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), childhood lead poisoning remains a major environmental health problem in the U.S. Even children who appear healthy can have dangerous levels of lead in their bodies. Lead may cause a range of health effects, from behavioral problems and learning disabilities, to seizures and death. Children 6 years old and under are most at risk, because children often play in or near areas that have lead dust. The most important thing to keep in mind about lead is that lead poisoning is preventable.
 
What is it?
Lead is a highly toxic metal that was used for many years in products found in and around our homes. Lead is most commonly found in lead-based paint. Although all paint contain a small trace of lead, lead does not become a hazard until paint begins to chip, crack, peel or otherwise disintegrate. When lead begins to deteriorate, it creates dust that may cover other surfaces like windows, floors, and soil. Children and adults who come into contact with contaminated areas are likely to develop lead poisoning.
 
There are ways to protect yourself and your family from lead poisoning, including the removal of lead-based paint and household items containing lead. For more information on what you can do to prevent lead poisoning, please visit:
