“Let’s talk about LEAD… / And I don’t mean just chemistry / I mean the shockingly toxic stuff / Found all ’round our communities…”
LEAD is a significant toxic threat found in ALL paints applied before 1978 — and some even since then! This video introduces the dangers lead poses to people of all ages (especially kids), shows a couple common ways lead exposure happens, and ends with a call to “get the lead out NOW” (as shown in further videos @ www.MarekBennett.com/lead).
