How would my child become lead poisoned?
The number one cause of children becoming lead poisoned is deteriorating lead-based paint found in older homes. Lead dust is also a concern when you have lead-based paint on surfaces that are chewable or that undergo friction or impact. The only way to know whether your child is lead poisoned is through a blood lead test.
