Health effects from short-term overexposure to lead
Lead poisoning can happen if a person is exposed to very high levels of lead over a short period of time. When this happens, a person may feel:
Loss of appetite
Pain or tingling in the hands and/or feet
Lead can cross the placental barrier, which means pregnant women who are exposed to lead also expose their unborn children. Lead can damage a developing baby’s nervous system. Even low-level lead exposures in developing babies have been found to affect behaviour and intelligence. Lead exposure can cause miscarriage, stillbirths, and infertility (in both men and women).
SOURCES OF LEAD:
Lead in paint:
- Lead-based paints for homes, children’s toys and household furniture have been banned in the United States since 1978. But lead-based paint is still on walls and woodwork in many older homes and apartments. Most lead poisoning in children results from eating chips of deteriorating lead-based paint.
Water pipes and imported canned goods:
- Lead pipes, brass plumbing fixtures and copper pipes soldered with lead can release lead particles into tap water. Lead solder in food cans, banned in the United States, is still used in some countries.
- Lead particles from leaded gasoline or paint settle on soil and can last years. Lead-contaminated soil is still a major problem around highways and in some urban settings. Some soil close to walls of older houses contains lead.
Household dust : Household dust can contain lead from lead paint chips or from contaminated soil brought in from outside
Pottery : Glazes found on some ceramics china and porcelain can contain lead that can leach into food served or stored in the pottery.
Toys : Lead is sometimes found in toys and other products produced abroad.
