Lead poisoning is a danger for every baby, child, pregnant woman, and fetus.

Lead paint was commonly used in houses built before 1978. Children living in these homes are, therefore, at a higher risk. Cracking, peeling paint chips and dust from opening and closing windows are the most common exposure sources.

Elevated lead levels can result in developmental delays or brain damage. Proper cleaning methods to reduce lead dust, frequent handwashing, reducing lead hazards and exposures, healthy diets, and other measures can reduce the risk of lead absorption and poisoning.

Talk to your child’s healthcare provider today about testing your child at ages 1 and 2. Results are sent to Fulton County Public Health for follow-up and risk reduction education.
