CDC says 900,000 U.S. children have elevated levels in blood

By Daniel Crum

Lead poisoning is one of the most common and most preventable health problems, affecting children today. The CDC reports that 900,000 children in the United States between ages 1 and 5 have elevated levels of lead in their blood. The good news is – lead poisoning is entirely preventable.

Signs of lead poisoning are not always easy to see and symptoms may go unrecognized for some time. Because of this, children may be poisoned and not act or look sick. A simple blood test is the only way to find out if a child has lead poisoning.
