Did you realize that if your home was built before 1978, it most likely has some lead in the paint. If your home was built before 1950, the paint contains more lead. Lead paint can be a danger to your children if the paint is chipped, peeling, cracked or chalking; or when repairing or remodeling disturbs it. Approximately 37% of the homes have some lead paint. Due to natural weathering over time, paint dust and chips fall to the ground at the base of the home. When owners scrape off the old paint in preparation for repainting, this too can contaminate the soil. This contaminated area, known as the drip zone (the area where old paint dust and chips has fallen), can contain lead levels as high as some industrial contamination sites. So enjoy your organic food! (oh, use raised beds).
