Lead-based paint is a major source of lead poisoning for children and can also affect adults. In children, lead poisoning can cause irreversible brain damage and can impair mental functioning. Children who have been exposed to lead are at risk for learning disabilities, behavioral problems, and kidney failure. At very high levels, lead can cause seizures, coma, and even death. Parents often discover that their child has high lead levels when doctors do blood tests at yearly checkups.
It can retard mental and physical development and reduce attention span. It can also retard fetal development even at extremely low levels of lead. In adults, it can cause irritability, poor muscle coordination, and nerve damage to the sense organs and nerves controlling the body. Lead poisoning may also cause problems with reproduction (such as a decreased sperm count). It may also increase blood pressure. Thus, young children, fetuses, infants, and adults with high blood pressure are the most vulnerable to the effects of lead.
Lead paint has been banned from New York for more than 40 years. But many landlords still haven't removed this poison from the apartments they rent to families. Every day, children throughout the city are diagnosed with lead paint poisoning.
