Description: Caption:
To illustrate how lead-based paint can become a childhood hazard, this photograph depicts two very young boys picking at the bright red paint that covered the surface of a wooden board. Many brands of house paint used to contain lead until it was banned in 1978. Children who gnaw, or pick at surfaces covered by lead-based pain, can ingest the paint flakes, or dust, thereby, poisoning themselves with this heavy metal.
