Exposure to high levels can cause severe lead poisoning that can lead to various disorders and disabilities and even death.
Deteriorating or disturbed lead paint in old homes can produce toxic lead dust. Exposure to even low levels of lead dust can cause irreversible damage to your health, especially for children below 6 years old and pregnant women. Curious young kids can accidentally touch and put lead-contaminated items into their mouths while exposed pregnant women can pass lead to their unborn babies.
For young children, lead exposure can cause:
Lead passed to the unborn child from the mother can also lead to premature birth, miscarriage, developmental issues, and low birth weight. As for healthy adults, the risks include high blood pressure, fertility issues, brain and kidney problems, and anemia.
In addition, the Massachusetts Lead Law aims to protect the rights of children to a lead-safe home. Houses with children below 6 years of age are required to remove or control lead paint. Moreover, homeowners and real estate agents who are selling or renting their homes should notify their tenants or buyers regarding lead risks.
