Lead is a toxic heavy metal that is highly volatile and corrosive to living beings. Ingestion of lead paint leads to significant learning disabilities and behavioral problems in children, as well as organ damage, anemia, brain and nervous system debilitation, seizures, unconsciousness and even death in adults. The Environmental Protection Agency banned the use of lead paint in residential construction in 1978, claiming that no amount of lead ingestion is safe to human health.
