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
health department at 822-7215.
The traveling exhibit What’s Going On? – California and the Vietnam Era opens on Friday,
October 12 with a reception and program from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Community Memorial
Museum in Yuba City. What’s Going On? provides a timely examination of the impact of the
Vietnam War on California life and culture. Home to numerous defense contractors and
military training centers, the state also served as the primary portal for both returning
soldiers and Southeast Asian immigrants following the fall of Saigon. As the epicenter of
the war’s home front, California became a hotbed of social and political movements that
spread across the country.
