How is Lead Paint Dangerous?
While it is on the wall, intact, and not being disturbed, lead paint is practically harmless. However, it is common for cracks or chips to develop. At this point, the paint becomes a serious health hazard. Whether broken down and inhaled in dust or collected on fingers and accidentally ingested, lead paint can cause a form of poisoning that may lead to the following symptoms:
- Blue coloration around the gums
- Chest pains
If a person becomes exposed to lead paint in massive quantities and does not receive adequate treatment in time, the poisoning can become severe enough to result in death.
