Abstract

Lead poisoning has long range effects on children, both physically and academically. Even small amounts of lead toxicity can cause harm. Lead poisoning can affect any geographic area, although the focus of research tends to be in urban areas. Currently, one in thirty-eight children in the United States is identified with lead poisoning, impacting health, cognitive abilities and behavior. Public awareness remains a critical factor in prevention as the problem has not gone away.
