Lead Exposure: When it hits home
My daughter just had her lead level tested at her 9month check up and it came back at a 9.3. I am kinda freaked out right now as I have done everything I can to provide my child with what I thought was a non-toxic environment. I live in an older home and am afraid the water and/or possible lead paint may be the culprit. Has anyone else dealt with high lead levels in their infant and the possibility that it is in fact due to the home environment? I am very careful about the toys she plays with and the containers her food and water are in. Does anyone have suggestions for lowering her lead levels? Can anyone recommend a home inspection company/individual to test lead levels in my home? I live in Columbia County about 25 min. from NW Portland.
