Lead in paint and varnish.. The hidden dangers



Lead-safety Message: Before the dangers of lead were known, it was a common ingredient in house paint and varnish, where it acted as a pigment and increased durability and a drying agent. Millions of homes, schools, and businesses still have lead based paint on their walls, both inside and out. If the paint is in good condition and has been painted over, it usually doesn’t pose a problem. But if the paint is peeling or has been disturbed by scraping, sanding, or burning, it can pose significant health risks to people and pets, especially young children.
