Preventing Child Lead Poisoning

Lead exposure can affect nearly every system in the body and is associated with numerous behavioral and learning problems. Research indicates that even low levels of lead in a child’s blood can affect IQ, the ability to pay attention, and academic achievement. Because lead exposure often occurs with no obvious symptoms, it frequently goes unrecognized.
