Parents In Wisconsin Can Now Test Their Children For Lead Exposure Using Saliva
Date:6/15/2009

  • Racine County: #Children Tested 4,952, Total Confirmed Lead Poisoning Case 89
  • Sheboygan County: #Children Tested 1,726, Total Confirmed Lead Poisoning Case 46

  • Data analyzed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
    Based on 2000 US Census data.

    Lead exposure is particularly dangerous for children. It can result in anemia, learning disabilities, speech delays, attention deficit disorders, mental retardation, hearing loss, and different forms of renal and neurological damage.

    Typically, lead testing products require blood samples from the patient. This is often difficult if the patient to be tested is a child. In such cases, it is more effective to use saliva samples instead of blood samples. Researchers from the Department of Health in North Carolina proved that saliva tests are just as conclusive as blood tests in determining lead levels in a person’s body.
