Lead poisoning prevention

As part of its initiative to help with lead poisoning education, information and abatement, the Rotary Club of Toledo provided a grant of $10,000 to the Toledo Public School Foundation for lead testing. The funds will pay for the testing of more than 1,000 preschoolers who were not covered in earlier screenings limited to Head Start children. Children under four years of age are most at risk for lead poisoning as the youngsters absorb about 40% more lead than adults, and the results of the absorption cause them more significant and permanent harm.
