Why did people ever make lead-based paint?

Lead-based paint is a serious health hazard. It's especially dangerous for children. When they breathe in the dust or even put paint chips directly into their mouths, they can suffer from learning disabilities, IQ issues, mood swings, aggression issues and much more. Lead can stunt their development. While some of the signs only show up as the child gets older, exposure at a young age can have an impact for the rest of their life.

Could your child's mood swings be linked to lead poisoning?

It's now commonly recognized that exposure to lead-based paint results in reduced IQ, ADHD and other cognitive harm. Medical researchers have also concluded that there is a link between lead exposure in children and aggression and in violent crime in teenagers and young adults.

Lead poisoning can have a negative impact on a child's learning

Children who suffer from lead poisoning often have some delayed abilities. This can present challenges for them in school. It is imperative that school districts that have children affected by lead take the initiative to ensure that these kids have the best educational opportunities available.
