Lead Contamination is a Huge Problem in LA County

The LA Times recently reported that over 300 LA neighborhoods have higher rates of children with elevated lead levels than Flint, Michigan. These levels were reported the by Los Angeles County Department of Health according to blood tests. This sobering news is a call to action for government officials, parents, and anyone who cares about the health and safety of LA’s children. Even slightly high levels of lead in the blood stream can impair IQ and childhood development.

What are you going to do about it?

There’s so much you can do to prevent lead contamination. You can make sure your kids and any other kids in your life get tested for lead levels in their blood. But another key in terms of keeping kids safe from lead exposure is getting properties tested for lead. Whether you own a house, manage a commercial property, or simply send your kids to school, you can make sure that every place they go is lead-free.
