Stapleton, Richard M., Bradley, Bill


You can't see lead, smell it, or taste it, but it's everywhere: in water, food, soil, paint, and many other sources; in rural areas and cities; in the wealthiest neighborhoods and the poorest. Almost 75 percent of all homes in America contain lead paint. The EPA estimates that one of every ten preschoolers suffers from some form of lead poisoning, with results ranging from mild retardation to major brain damage, developmental problems and physical defects. Even low levels of lead exposure among children under six can diminish intelligence and cause behavioral problems. Yet, lead poisoning is entirely preventable. Lead Is a Silent Hazard is your guide to lead-proofing your home and your child's environment. Using real-life stories and interviews with medical and health experts, Richard Stapleton explains how you can avoid or eliminate the many sources of lead your child may encounter. If your child has tested positive, you'll want to read the chapters on treatment and lead abatement immediately. There is also essential data on state-by-state information centers, national hotlines, home lead test kits, and product safety listings.Stapleton, Richard M. is the author of 'Lead Is a Silent Hazard' with ISBN 9780802713032 and ISBN 0802713033.
