Lead poisoning is one of the foremost environmental health threats to children in the U.S. Almost a half million children - 2.2% of all pre-schoolers - have enough lead in their blood to reduce intelligence and attention span, cause learning disabilities, and damage permanently a child's brain and nervous system. Most children are poisoned by lead in and around their home when they are exposed to harmful levels of lead-contaminated dust, deteriorated lead-based paint, and lead-contaminated soil. Scorecard identifies the communities with the worst lead hazards and provides tools to prevent lead poisoning.
