Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program

Tuesday, October 8th

Lead is toxic to everyone, but unborn babies and young children (6 months to 3 years) are at greatest risk for health problems from lead poisoning. Young children absorb lead more easily than older kids and adults, and lead is more harmful to them.

Linda Overton from Riverside University Health System Public Health’s Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program came on the show to talk about October’s Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program.
