Why We Should Worry About Lead Poisoning in a NEW Home!
This invisible poison travels on your hair, your clothes, your shoes, your tools and it causes permanent brain damage for children under the age of 6. If your home is built before 1940 in the U.S., nearly 90% of these homes contain lead. Even if you live in a new house, you may be bringing this poison into your home from articles you buy, or collect, or were handed down in your family. You may bring this poison dust from the places you visit or work into your home. Watch as Kate Kirkwood actually tests household objects on the TEDx stage and shows you which ones contain toxic lead paint.
