The Problem with Lead Paint
Back before lead was determined to have highly adverse health effects, it was added to paint for a variety of reasons. Lead was used as pigment to create specific colors of paint, to decrease the time it took for paint to dry – which was helpful with large-scale domestic painting – and to make paint more durable, long lasting, and resistant to moisture. Paint-makers and professional painters probably figured using lead in paint was safe because they didn’t imagine people eating paint off the walls. But they failed to think about what happens when the paint gets old and begins to crack and peel, falling in chips and pieces to the floor where children are wont to put just about anything they find into their mouths. Unfortunately, quite a few children suffered from this mistake, contracting learning disabilities, internal organ and brain damage, as well as behavioral problems. Adults suffered too, after breathing in lead paint dust, as high levels of lead poisoning can cause seizures, unconsciousness and death.
