Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention

Lead is a toxic metal that was used in some paints made before 1978. Children are exposed to lead when older buildings are in poor condition.  Today, childhood lead poisoning effects 310,000 U.S. children six years old and under.  A simple blood test can help prevent damage caused by lead poisoning.
