Childhood Lead Poisoning
Childhood lead poisoning is a preventable, but very serious environmental health problem. The most common cause of childhood lead poisoning is dust and paint chips from old lead-based paint found in older homes. New York State requires health care providers to test children with a blood lead test at age one and again at age two.
