Lead Prevention

"Babies and young children are at greater risk of being exposed to lead because they often put their hands and other objects into their mouths. Lead exposure happens when hands and other objects have lead on them from contaminated dust or soil. Children may also be exposed to lead by eating and drinking food or water that has lead in it, using dishes or glasses that contain lead, inhaling lead dust from lead-based paint or lead-contaminated soil, or from playing with toys that have lead paint on them." Find out what you can do to help keep your children and home safe from lead. (michigan.gov/lead)
