Lead poisoning can lead to serious health problems and limit the development of the brain and nervous system.  If you are concerned about lead exposure, consult with your doctor.  A simple blood test can be conducted to measure the blood lead level.


Those who are the most at risk are: 

  • Pregnant women
  • Infants
  • Children of ages 6 and under.

 Young children can absorb lead easier than older children and adults.  Pregnant women can pass lead to their fetus through their blood.
