Lead is a heavy metal that was used for many building purposes. The most notable is the use of lead in paint and varnishes. Lead-based paint was available to the general public until 1978. It was then banned for residential use. Children are most susceptible to lead poisoning. Their developing brain and central nervous system are especially vulnerable to the toxicity of lead. Child lead poisoning can occur either when children crawl or play on contaminated surfaces and subsequently ingest or inhale lead dust. Adult exposure is most common during demolition or renovation. Large amounts of lead dust are created and control measures may not have been taken. Exposure among adults can result in reproductive complications. Look for joint and muscle pain, nerve disorders, and trouble concentrating and memorizing.
