The Effects of Childhood Lead Poisoning

In this video adapted from Lead Awareness for Parents by the Coalition to Prevent Lead Poisoning, two mothers share their experiences about how their children suffered from lead poisoning. First, meet the Sanfilippo family who discovered their young son chewing on wood from their porch while they renovated it, and then found that there was lead paint present. Also meet the Travis family, whose children likely got lead poisoning from lead hazards in their rental homes. Hear about the importance of regular testing for blood lead levels, and learn how to prevent lead exposure.
