To help protect our most vulnerable populations – newborn babies, infants, and young children – against physical and mental damage from toxic heavy metals, by developing unique new screening tools that provide the ultimate testing of blood-metal levels with accuracy and ease.

Lead is invisible, and it is everywhere. About 24 million U.S. homes – and not just the homes of low-income families – contain deteriorated lead-based paint, lead water pipes, and elevated levels of lead-contaminated house dust. Just a tiny amount of contaminated household dust can cause lead poisoning in children.

There is no safe level of lead exposure. Even blood lead levels beneath the current Centers for Disease Control Action Levels can cause physical or mental damage – but because exposure often occurs with no obvious symptoms, it frequently goes undiagnosed, and therefore, untreated. Lead exposure can affect almost every system in the body – including the brain, heart, lungs, kidneys, and bones – and at extremely high levels, can be fatal.
