It seems that health is on everyone's mind these days. Everywhere you look there is a new health trend or new study alerting us about how to improve on our health. Parents, in particular, are always looking for ways to keep their children active and having a balanced diet. However, there is important part of health that most parents are ignoring.
Lead poisoning is something that we should be paying attention to as well. In major cities such as New Orleans, lead is trapped within the city walls affecting all who inhale it, particularly vulnerable populations (children under the age of six). The effects of lead on children is long term and comes about slowly, mainly through neurological diseases, such as muscle growth and brain development.
A solution to addressing the issue of lead poisoning is by urging parents as well as policy makers to encourage doctors to test their children the same way they would test for diabetes or high blood pressure. Sign this petition to approve the city of New Orleans Annual Mandated Lead Testing For Children and Youth.
