Lead Paint! The Longest-Lasting Childhood-Health Epidemic in U.S. History $500 Scholarship Offer

Children age six and under are extremely susceptible to the negative effects of lead because their body is still growing. It absorbs more lead as a result and their brain and nervous system are very sensitive to these negative effects. Parents may not even realize their child is being exposed to lead, as the child is breathing in dust from lead-based paint or may play with a toy that has this type of paint.

A child who has been exposed to lead may suffer from learning or behavioral problems, such as hyperactivity. Some children have a low IQ and others grow at a slower rate than their peers. Hearing problems and anemia have also been reported.

The removal of lead paint requires specialized knowledge to ensure the lead dust is not spread throughout the home. Furthermore, all state and local laws must be followed during the process. Finally, protective gear must be worn by all who are working on this task to ensure their health is not negatively impacted. Enterprise Painters works with clients in need of lead paint removal to ensure no further harm is done to the occupants of the home or office and is offering a $500 scholarship to one individual who can discuss this important topic and its impact on America. Lead paint has been used to paint many things including painting kitchen cabinets. or for exterior house painting.
