Lead-based consumer paint remains a global public health threat
Date:8/4/2009

the course of our study.

"These two observations document the fact that the technology is available so that manufacturers do not need to use lead to produce high-quality paint," adds Clark. "There is no legitimate reason paint manufacturersparticularly the large, multinational companies we analyzed with more depth in the current studyshould knowingly distribute a product that has long been known to be dangerous to people."

Clark says calls for a global ban on the use of lead in paintssuch as the one in made in his 2006 paperappear to be having some impact. In May of 2009, a United Nations-sponsored international forum passed a resolution to establish a global partnership to achieve such a goal.
