Lead poisoning - spreading awareness

Lead poisoning a silent threat is spreading - lack of awareness. GOI got LEAD FREE petrol all INDIA since 2000 for this reason. Only one remedy AVOID EXPOSURE. Mother to child transfer in the womb ensures this last for generations. Has many pathways it can enter your body. PAINT is one.

There are no symptoms at all. Doctors in general never loof for this. Blood test for Lead can confirm but few instruments are held in INDIA & lead moves fr blood to BONES in 30 days. You have Lead in your Bones but can never find out. This goes on over a life  time

Millions of toys ( fr china) were recalled by leading TOY Cos of US 2007. Problem was LEAD in paint used. Fall in IQ, stunted growth are some outcomes .......

Most schools have playground where the items are painted in bright colors. (90% of paints in INDIA were lead based till 2008. Some makers have changed some output to LEAD FREE. But there is very little mention in media.

There is a large amount Leaded paint in the shop shelf. Unless U ask for LEAD FREE paint U may be palmed off old stock. Even shop may be ignorant about LEAD FREE / LEADED paint.

Effort is in hand to educate teachers to build a larger base of LEAD EDUCATORS.  see

Public awareness is the key.
