What are the different types of lead threats?

ASSIGNMENT#70288Paint flaking off of window sills, doors, or walls should always be treated as a potential health risk for small children. Consumption of paint chips can cause irreversible brain damage and should be avoided at all costs.

Home renovation projects that create dust in the process of cutting or abrasing materials with lead paint on them is also a huge problem. Lead dust inhaled by renovation workers or building inhabitants sets the stage for long term lead exposure.
