Oh, this will be coming to a town near you.......
When I was in school in Greensboro, we were told that certain segments of the population (re poor) were behind in academics because they ate lead paint. If it hadn't been for the lead paint, they would be as smart as everyone else.
"Lead enters childrens bloodstreams when they eat paint chips.."
While he's giving tax cuts to the rich, and cutting food stamps, the poor are forced to eat paint!

84 over a three year period.
What a disaster. [sarc]
Another overreach by the Health Dept. in search of something to do.
Now they want to be independent so they can really grab power to make decisions which can only be fought in courts, which means they will essentially be untouchable.
Then they can ban smoking in the county which they really want to do and bcome your nanny.
They ought to give those lead tests here, children thrive on it where I live. I'll bet there isn't a kid in my neighborhood who can't tell you how many grains are readily available for any standard caliber round.
Has anybody told these busybodies that there are hundreds of gallons of paint sitting in stores around town?
These stupid people make me sick. It is far safer to encapsulate the lead in old paint than it is TO REMOVE IT AND FILL THE AIR AROUND THESE KIDS WITH A LEAD AEROSOL. They are going to force the very problem they say they are trying to prevent. Typical stupid liberals!
Your statement is right on target.
We had the tests done, the house "failed". The buyers sent the report saying how it failed (they have a young child). We examined the data which consisted of a few places where there was some old paint and a lot of lead "detected" under new paint none of which is peeling. We decided there was no health risk to the child nor any legal risk to us so we ignored it. Likewise the new owners ignored it presumably telling their child not to suck on the walls (windowsills present more risk, but didn't have much lead).
Bottom line we lowered the price for various needed repairs although not explicitly for the lead. But if we had wanted to rent we would have had to bite the (steel encased) bullet.
More than eight months after Mars Inc. announced recall, treats are seen in Santa Ana, California and Washington, D.C., stores.
PART ONE: HIDDEN THREAT -- Regulators have found unsafe lead levels in 112 brands of candy most made in Mexico but test results almost always are kept from parents and health officials...
PART TWO: THE CHILI FIELDS -- Chilies grown in Mexico start out safe but pick up lead as they are dried and ground on their way to candy factories.
PART THREE: THE CANDY MAKERS -- Some Mexican companies make two versions of candy, one clean and one using lead-tainted ingredients. These poison products are not for export but still make their way into California.
PART FOUR: POISONED PACKAGES -- [The Orange County] Register finds high levels at Mexican village where leaded glaze used in pottery-making.
PART FIVE: POROUS BORDER -- Regulators can't agree on which rules to follow to stop the flow of tainted candies into the United States...
