MSNBC is reporting that the CDC is going to be publishing a report regarding an unusual source of childhood lead poisoning. In Maine, six cases of childhood lead poisoning were able to be tracked to lead dust on car seats. The parents work at factories that deals with heavy metals. The factories do not provide places for the workers to shower and change clothes after work, so they shed the lead dust into the cars. The children are exposed and poisoned.

There is no known safe level of lead in the body. Even at small doses, lead can cause developmental delays, loss of IQ points and other problems. The loss of IQ points due to lead exposure is permanent even after the lead is excreted from the bod

I have handled hundreds of cases on behalf of lead-poisoned children in the City of St. Louis and I have the largest verdict in Missouri on behalf of a lead poisoned child.
