Exposure to lead, even in small amounts can cause serious health problems. Children are particularly vulnerable to lead poisoning.  Older buildings often contain lead-based paint and lead contaminated dust.

Lead exposure in children has been linked to learning disabilities, ADHD and lower IQ scores. The Journal of the American Medical Association suggests that lead exposure in childhood can negatively impact IQ scores for decades. Other studies link exposure to this neurotoxin to an increase in aggressive behavior and crime.

Lead-based paint and lead-contaminated dust in older buildings are the most common sources of lead poisoning in children. Other sources for lead exposure includes air, dust and soil that have been contaminated.   Adults who work with batteries, do home renovations or work in auto repair shops also might be exposed to lead and can bring lead dust home with them on their clothes.
