preventing lead poisoning

supervising your kids to protect them

Most of the lead poisoning in Massachusetts comes from lead paint dust in older homes. Many homes built before 1978 have lead paint on the inside and outside of the building.

Most children who have lead poisoning do not look or act sick. A lead test is the only way to know if your child has lead poisoning. Ask your doctor to test your child for lead. Some children may have:

  • Upset stomach
  • Trouble eating or sleeping
  • Headache
  • Trouble paying attention

So pay attention to your kids!!! there are major health issues in lead poisoning.
