Lead poisoning is the leading environmental health risk to children in America today. Lead-based paint was commonly used in home and for other purposed before it was banned in the United States in 1978. If your property was built before 1978, any peeling or cracking paint should be inspected for lead contamination.

If lead is ingested, it can cause multiple health issues ranging from nervous system damage to death with the damage being immediate. Lead-based paint is dangerous to everyone, but it poses the greatest risk for small children because it is sweet tasting when consumed and the damage caused while they are still growing and developing is permanent and irreversible.
