9780306455261: Getting the Lead Out: The Complete Resource on How to Prevent and Cope with Lead Poisoning

Between one and a half to two million children under the age of six—one out of eleven American preschoolers—have elevated levels of lead in their blood, a condition that can cause damage to their developing brains, resulting in learning disabilities, behavior problems, and decreased IQs. A severe problem that affects not only children from our poorest neighborhoods but also those from many middle- and upper-income families, lead poisoning is most often caused by the lead-based paint that is present on walls, woodwork and facades of 75% of all American homes built before 1989—57 million US home and apartments.Getting the Lead Out: The Complete Resource on How to Prevent and Cope with Lead Poisoning is the first comprehensive, action-oriented book on this compelling health issue. It defines and elaborates on the major sources of lead in the home and environment, medical concerns, prevention strategies, and techniques for controlling lead hazards, while offering advice to parents and homeowners on where to turn should their children—or home—be found to have high lead levels.

Review:

Lead poisoning? The words elicit images of cracked and chipped paint in shanty towns ... but no--lead paint is present in 57 million U.S. homes and apartments, and your child may be at risk. This all-in-one resource guide provides technical information in layperson's terms about lead poisoning prevention, symptoms, and what to do if your child has been diagnosed. The information is well presented, with 65 pages of resources and appendixes. A good addition to any parent's library. You'll be scared--and motivated to find out more.

Review:

Lead is toxic in the human body and one out of eery eleven American preschool children have elevated levels of lead in their bodies because they live in homes built prior to 1980 when lead paint was commonplace. Getting The Lead Out contains hundreds of addresses, names and telephone numbers for valuable contacts in the areas of lead removal, education, state and Federal agencies, legal help and support networks (listed state-by-state) for families who need immediate assistance in getting lead out of their lives once and for all. Getting The Lead Out provides crucial, easy-to-understand information on identifying and removing sources of lead contamination from any living space, "acceptable" levels of lead in the body and the blood; managing landlord-tenant and contractor-client disputes, the special educational needs of lead-poisoned children, how to prevent recurrences after lead poisoning has been diagnosed and treated, and how to creatively and effectively fight lead poisoning in the community, in the media, and in the courts. Highly recommended! -- Midwest Book Review
