Information About Lead Poisoning

Lead poisoning is caused by long-term exposure to lead, a naturally occurring metal used in everything from construction materials to batteries. Lead poisoning can cause serious health problems, particularly in young kids. Lead is toxic to everyone, but unborn babies and young children are at greatest risk for health problems from lead poisoning.
