Why We Need to Get The Lead Out

Lead is one of those pesky pollutants that does more than poison the well. Lead poisoning is as ubiquitous as it is harmful in our culture. Although many efforts have been made to extract it from paint, soil, gasoline and many household products, lead still remains, often at unsafe levels. In fact, over one million children are affected by lead poisoning today. Lead exposure’s health hazards include everything from irritability to slowed growth and organ failure. Checking lead concentrations in your home and community isn’t something that should be overlooked. Education is the first step towards lead-safe society. With the help of remediation companies like Sevenson Environmental Services and the cooperation of governments and communities, we just might get the lead out.
