October is Lead Poisoning Prevention Month. Why? Because Lead Safe America Foundation declared it so a few years ago!…
The Feds had officially created and declared Lead Poisoning Prevention *Week* in October, but we felt that that wasn’t enough; this problem is too profound and pervasive (and still impacting too many children) to give it only one week of our attention.
In recognition of Lead Poisoning Prevention Month, our wonderful friends at GroGud.com (please “like” them on Facebook!) have helped us to create these shareable PSA info-graphics — so you can begin to share them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and wherever else you might share images. If we start sharing them now, hopefully by the time October rolls around they will be all over the internet! Let’s “break the Internet” with something important for a change – messages to inspire childhood lead poisoning prevention!

Each info-graphic succinctly covers a different angle of the problem. Each one is a visual representation of one of the Lead Safe America PSAs you may have heard recently on the radio on your daily commute. [“Thank you” to our friends at the Total Traffic & Weather Network for all of the Amazing PSAs on the radio recently! In August 2015 alone there were more than 7,600 mentions on radio stations across the country!]
Here’s the link to the study that discusses the $50.9 billion number… http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2011-05/tmsh-eco050411.php
