June is Healthy Homes, Healthy Children Month
Exposures to chemicals in paint, dust and consumer products, among other environmental hazards in the home, can negatively impact children's developmental and respiratory health. At least 535,000 and as many as 1.2 million children in the United States have elevated blood lead (EBL) levels. How can we protect children from the ill effects of unhealthy housing?
