According to the City of Rochester's website, hundreds of children in our area are tested and found to have elevated blood lead levels. They will suffer lifetime effects of lead poisoning, including impaired physical development, lower educational performance, attention problems, and aggressive or even violent behavior.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) National Survey of Lead and Allergens in Housing estimated that 38 million permanently occupied housing units (40% of all housing units) in the United States contain some lead-based paint that was applied before the residential use of lead-based paint was banned in 1978."Housing units" include single-family homes, manufactured housing, and multi-unit dwellings like apartments. Vacant housing, group quarters (e.g., prisons, hospitals, and dormitories), hotels, motels, and other short-term housing, military bases, and housing where children are not permitted to live (e.g., housing designated exclusively for the elderly and those with zero-bedroom units) are not included in this number.
