Three brochures offer guidelines on preventing lead poisoning in children, lowering lead blood levels in children, and safely removing leaded paint from homes. The brochure on prevention of lead poisoning explains sources of lead, how lead affects a child, the importance of screening a child for lead poisoning, and ways to protect a child from lead. The brochure on intervention explains the sources of lead and provides more detailed information about ways to reduce a child's exposure to lead. The brochure on renovation reviews the danger of lead-based paint in older homes, outlines problems involved in removing old paint, lists safety tips for renovating home interiors and exteriors, and notes the importance of screening children for lead poisoning. The brochures cite Illinois sources for screening tests and for further information. (JDD)
