Concerned About Lead Poisoning?
Lead is a toxic metal that can wreak havoc on every system in the body. When ingested, it gets into the blood and accumulates in the bones, liver and kidneys. It affects the nervous system and is especially dangerous to children. Their developing nervous systems are extremely sensitive to it. In fact, the Department of Health labeled it the “number one environmental threat to the health of children”. It has been linked to a myriad of illnesses and is known to cause learning disabilities, behavior problems, seizures and death.
The lead that was used heavily in manufacturing a wide range of building materials and consumer products in the past, still poses a serious health hazard today. Unlike other pollutants, lead does not dissipate over time and as a result, it continues to invade our indoor environments through air, drinking water, food, contaminated soil, deteriorating paint, and dust.
