With all the recent uproar over the lead crisis in Flint, Michigan, a lot of people are wondering about whether their own homes, water, and communities have lead problems, too. Particularly as people start thinking about having children, the importance of restricting exposure to lead becomes even more essential.
Lead exposure, particularly for children and anyone else who has a weakened immune system, is very serious. It can cause serious developmental problems, including brain development issues that can result in lifelong ripple effects. Whenever possible, it’s important to eliminate, or at least tightly restrict, exposure to lead.
According to this Mayo Clinic article, the signs and symptoms of lead poisoning in children may include:
- Developmental delay
- Learning difficulties
- Loss of appetite
- Weight loss
- Sluggishness and fatigue
- Abdominal pain
- Hearing loss
Signs and symptoms of lead poisoning in adults may include:
