Lead poisoning is a serious but preventable health problem. Lead can cause permanent damage—especially to the developing brains and nervous systems of unborn children and children under six years old. It can cause lifelong learning, behavior, and medical problems.

This video was created as an entry for a video contest sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. It was produced by the University of Connecticuts Healthy Environments for Children Initiative (www.hec.uconn.edu), Department of Extension, in cooperation with the Center for Environmental Sciences and Engineering, the Department of Dramatic Arts, and the Design Center.
