Live Well, Work Well – LEAD POISONING
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least 4 million children in the United States are at risk of exposure to lead. Lead poisoning occurs when lead builds up in the body, usually over the course of months or years.
Initially, lead poisoning can be difficult to detect because even people with high levels of lead in their blood often have no obvious symptoms. Symptoms usually don’t emerge until levels are dangerously high.
