Richard L. Hembra (ed)
Millions of children in the U.S. have enough lead in their blood to cause long-term negative effects on intelligence and behavior. Lead poisoning occurs through exposure to lead in air, dust, dirt, water, food, and certain commercial products, such as paint and car batteries. Exposure to lead can harm every system in the body and is especially dangerous to fetuses and young children. This report reviewed the fed. strategy for reducing lead exposure and eliminating lead poisoning. Three agencies were examined: EPA, HUD, and CDC. It provides info. on: fed. activities to reduce lead exposure; how these activities compare with the actions identified as needed to eliminate childhood lead poisoning; and state and local lead-poisoning prevention programs.
