The Dangers of Lead Poisoning
Lead is a heavy metal that is particularly useful in batteries and ammunition. However, if used incorrectly, the substance poses serious health risks. Direct contact or ingestion of lead has been linked to problems such as:
- Kidney damage
- Reproductive problems
- Nerve damage
- Stunted growth
The effects of lead paint poisoning can be particularly devastating to children. Because their bodies are still growing, it makes kids highly susceptible to the above health problems.
