The Dangers of Lead Exposure
Lead is a powerful neurotoxin that can present serious health problems in humans, including the development and functioning of the body. Damage can occur in organs including the kidneys, blood, and central nervous system. The effects from leat exposure can result in a diminished quality of life.
There are a number of sources that can cause exposure to lead. Indoor dust may contain lead particles released from lead-painted surfaces. Lead-contaminated soil from the outside can be tracked in. Even drinking water may contain lead from lead solder in the plumbing or from old pipes that contain lead.
Childhood Lead Poisoning - A Serious Health Risk
Lead poisoning in children is the number one environmental health risk in the United States. A child exposed to lead can suffer a number of health-related problems, including delayed development of the brain and the central nervous system. Lead exposure at a very high level can cause convulsions, comas and death. Even at low levels, lead can cause reduced IQ, learning disabilities and increased behavioral problems.
According to the EPA, at least 19 million homes are estimated to have lead-based paint hazards. At least 4 million of those homes have young children under the age of six living in them.
