LEAD POSIONING AND DAY CARE CENTERS
By now almost everyone knows that lead paint is extremely dangerous for infants and children. Lead may cause a range of health effects, from behavioral problems and learning disabilities, to seizures and death. Children six years old and under are most at risk.
Kudos to Jersey City, NJ! According to an ordinance to be presented to the City Council tonight, day care centers in Jersey City would have to notify parents or guardians that the State of New Jersey provides free blood tests for lead for uninsured and underinsured children.
Hey Roanoke City – what about our day care centers?
