Preventing Lead Poisoning - Home & Family

Preventing Lead Poisoning in Children
Board Certified Pediatrician Dr. JJ Levenstein joins Mark and Cristina to point out ways that lead can affect children and how to prevent poisoning by lead. Lead is a powerful neurotoxin and even small amounts can cause serious health problems. In older homes, lead-based paint and contaminated dust are the most hazardous lead sources for children. Caregivers should regularly wash hands and toys as dust and outdoor soil commonly have detectable lead. Dr. JJ advises to make sure children do not have access to peeling paint or chewable surfaces painted with lead-based paint. Another preventive measure is to regularly wet-mop floors and wet-wipe window components.
