Lead Hazards: Information, Prevention, Treatment and News

Many homes built before 1978 have paint that contains high levels of lead (called lead-based paint). Lead from paint, chips, and dust can pose serious health hazards if not taken care of properly. If you live in a home built before 1978 and you are pregnant or have children, your children may be at risk of exposure to lead. The resources on this page will help you learn more about the effects of lead-based paint exposure and offer tips and resources to help you protect your children from lead hazards.
