Lead Poisoning Prevention

Childhood lead poisoning remains one of the most serious threats to the health and well being of developing children. Because lead poisoning often occurs with no obvious symptoms, it frequently goes unrecognized. The only sure way to diagnose lead poisoning is with a simple blood test.

Despite improved industrial containment methods and medical interventions, lead poisoning remains an important occupational and environmental health concern.
