The estimate is based on children with a blood lead level of 5 micrograms per deciliter or higher using data from national surveys conducted in 2007-2008 and 2009-2010.

Children can also be exposed to lead from additional sources including contaminated drinking water, take-home exposures from a workplace, and lead in soil

Why is lead dangerous? (Reference: http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/info/)
Lead is a poison that serves no known purpose in the body. Lead enters your body when you swallow or breathe in lead dust or particles. Lead can be found in the air, water, food, dust and soil. Small amounts of lead can build up in the body and cause temporary or permanent damage.
