The following is an excerpt direct from the EPA:
The National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week theme, "Lead-Free Kids for a Healthy Future," aims to help individuals, organizations, industry, and state and local governments to work together to reduce childhood exposure to lead. EPA, along with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), promote educational activities during the week.
This year we've added a focus on testing children for elevated blood lead levels. Lead can enter the body in many ways, and children’s blood lead levels tend to increase rapidly from 6 to 24 months if exposed. A simple blood test can detect lead.
