This revised definition reflects findings from a 2012 National Toxicology Program Report that concluded a wide range of adverse health effects are associated with blood lead levels less than 5 μg/dL. One suggestion to the FDA is that they update their limits and food safety guidance. But the concern is how much a child may consume over time.
"In many American communities, the most significant route of lead exposure is from paint and soil", Bole said.
Meanwhile, Neltner said, parents should talk with their child's pediatrician about ways to reduce lead exposure, and should contact makers of their favorite food brands to ask whether the company regularly tests for lead and ensures that levels remain below 1 ppb. It should be possible to expand the number of products that fit into these categories, simply by understanding what some companies do right and replicating it.
