Healthy Homes: Prevent Lead Poisoning

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This 2:14 YouTube video educates people about lead safety and childhood lead poisoning prevention. It was created for refugees and new Americans living in Vermont, but the information it provides about lead in the home is useful to everyone. It explains how lead is harmful to everyone, especially young children and women who are pregnant. It identifies places in the home where lead may be found, including dust from lead paint in homes built before 1978, and clarifies that people may have come in contact with lead before coming to the U.S. from personal items as well as candy, cosmetics, and traditional remedies made in other countries. The video discusses the importance of blood tests for children to see if they have come in contact with lead, and makes recommendations for testing at specific ages.
