(10/23/2023) National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week (NLPPW) is an important reminder about lead poisoning prevention to reduce childhood exposure to lead. There are many sources of lead, but most often, children under six years old get lead poisoning from breathing in or swallowing dust from old lead paint that gets on floors and windowsills, hands, and toys. Despite the continued presence of lead in the environment, lead poisoning is preventable.
All children should have their blood tested for lead levels at ages 1 and 2, as required by NYS law. Healthcare providers will offer this test at children’s Well Visits. It is important to test your home, test your children, and learn how to prevent the serious health effects from lead poisoning. See the full press release for additional information about keeping children safe from exposure to lead.
