When was the last time you took your child to get tested for lead poisoning?
Your child may not show any noticeable symptoms of lead poisoning but once they are exposed to lead it cannot be reversed.
How Lead Effects Your Child:
Lead can cause damages to your child’s brain and nervous system, learning disabilities (e.g. lower IQ and attention span), seizures, and even death.
How Your Child Gets Exposed To Lead:
A child’s exposure to lead can be from paint, soil, drinking water, consumer products, foods, cosmetics, medicines, jobs, hobbies, and more. You can visit here to get details on these lead sources.
