Description

KIRO investigates ADD-like behavior in kids and found in many cases a strange result -- lead poisoning. Many kinds of children's jewelry had levels of lead many times what is admissible in even household paint. These items of jewelry invariable end up in children's mouths -- the lead ends up in their bloodstream where it can cause neurological damage.
