Children Under the age of 7
Children under 7 are at a higher risk for lead poisoning. They are still growing and developing which makes any level of lead unsafe and can cause serious damage to their brain and nervous system. Children should be tested at 12 and 24 months for lead.
Pregnant women can breathe in and ingest lead which can then be passed on to their baby. If lead is passed onto their baby it can cause serious problems. Pregnant women should be tested for lead.
