Lead gets into the body when inhaled, swallowed, or absorbed through the skin. It is stored in the body and released over time. Lead can cause health problems if small amounts accumulate over a long time or if a person is suddenly exposed to a large quantity. Children are more susceptible to lead poisoning, and it can cross the placental barrier and affect the baby when a pregnant woman is exposed.
Signs of lead poisoning can be similar to other disorders and can be hard to diagnose if you are unaware of the exposure. Some symptoms include stomach distress such as nausea, constipation, and abdominal pain. Lead exposure can also mimic neurological problems such as headaches, forgetfulness or memory loss, and irritability. Long term health effects include high blood pressure, kidney and heart disease, infertility issues, and it is even a probable cause of cancer.
