Effects of Lead Paint Poisoning in Children
Children are harmed through the ingestion of lead-based paint chips or by simply breathing the dust that is created when the paint is sanded or a renovation of the house occurs. Children are generally most susceptible because they come into contact with the substance during their developmental stages. Medical professionals say that the neurotoxin damages the developing brain of the young one and in severe cases, can cause death.
Other effects of lead paint poisoning include:
- Decreased IQ & intellect
- Learning disabilities
- Academic struggles
- ADD or ADHD
- Antisocial characteristics
