Study: small amounts of lead can be harmful to children’s health

The American Academy of Pediatrics says even a small amount of lead can have a harmful effect on a child’s health.

Researchers say a small amount of lead can cause children to have lower IQ scores, be impulsive and aggressive.

Doctors say that new federal standards should be put in place to define and test for lead hazards in dust, water and soil.
