Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 4 at 2:00 a.m.

National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week
October 11, 2007
News this summer that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recalled millions of toys after determining they contained excessive amounts of lead recently elevated the issue of childhood lead poisoning in the United States. In fact, the CDC estimates nearly half a million children living in the U.S. have blood lead levels high enough to cause significant damage to their health.

Despite the ever-threatening presence of lead in the environment today, lead poisoning is entirely preventable. To increase awareness of childhood lead poisoning prevention, Sutter County, is participating in National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week (NLPPW) October 21—27 along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

More information about preventing childhood lead poisoning is available from your local health department at 822-7215.

What’s Going On? provides a timely examination of the impact of the Vietnam War on California life and culture.
