Hazards of Lead Paint
Unfortunately, lead paint was not recognized as a health hazard until the late 1970s – up until that point it was used routinely in domestic and commercial painting. As a volatile and toxic substance, we now realize that using lead as an ingredient in such a common environmental substance as the paint is not such a wise idea. While lead paint is most dangerous to children, it is hazardous to anyone who ingests it. It is most commonly inadvertently ingested when the paint has chipped or flaked, or been crushed into dust and inhaled – as with a window that is opened and closed repeatedly.
When ingested, lead from lead paint can cause a variety of problems, ranging from learning disabilities and impaired nervous system to anemia. As such, lead poisoning, also known as lead toxicity, is a very serious concern.
