A severe problem that affects not only children from our poorest neighborhoods but also those from many middle- and upper-income families, lead poisoning is most often caused by the lead-based paint that is present on walls, woodwork and facades of 75% of all American homes built before 1989—57 million US home and apartments. Getting the Lead Out: The Complete Resource on How to Prevent and Cope with Lead Poisoning is the first comprehensive, action-oriented book on this compelling health issue.

It defines and elaborates on the major sources of lead in the home and environment, medical concerns, prevention strategies, and techniques for controlling lead hazards, while offering advice to parents and homeowners on where to turn should their children—or home—be found to have high lead levels.
