Lead is one of the most significant and widespread environmental hazards for children in
Maryland. Children are at greatest risk from birth to age six while their neurological systems
are developing. Sustained exposure to lead can cause long lasting neurological damage
or death. Effects of sustained exposure include learning disabilities, shortened attention
span, irritability, and lowered IQ.
The major source of exposure for children is lead paint dust from deteriorated lead paint or
from home renovation. Most childhood exposure occurs through children's normal hand-to-
mouth activity after contact with a source of leaded dust. The most effective prevention of
childhood lead poisoning is to reduce or eliminate exposure.
