Childhood Lead Poisoning Exposure Prevention
Lead can be found in many places inside and outside your home.
Lead can hurt your child. Lead can harm a child's brain. Lead poisoning can make it hard for children to learn, pay attention and behave. Most children who have lead poisoning do not look or act sick.
Ask your child's doctor about testing for lead. The only way to know if your child has lead poisoning is for your child to get a blood test for lead at 1 and 2 years of age. Some children over 2 also need to get tested.
