Fully Fund Lead Poisoning Prevention in US 2012 Budget

The fund for lead-poisoning prevention was almost entirely eliminated, a 94% cut! Once a child is poisoned by toxic lead, permanent brain damage reduces I.Q., lowers grades in school, and diminishes self-control. This, in turn, can lead to frustration, a sense of failure, impulsiveness, aggression, and, for some, potentially even violence, crime, and prison.
