One of the reasons kids eat paint chips with lead is the taste. It tastes sweet. Most of the problems are associated with the dust and inner city kids were affected by the old sash type windows going up and down causing a sanding effect which in turn deposited dust on the sill. Little kids stuck their fingers into the dust then straight into there mouths.

My wife is a retired principal scientist and worked on a project to formulate a sealer that would neutralize the lead. They could not find any way to accomplish neutralizing the lead. It was just to heavy a metal to neutralize. That project was abandoned after a year or so of trials.

It is mean stuff...

Interesting the science, I never had to deal with lead paint too often but I live in a place that was built around 1890, A neglected homestead lodge and all the house had been covered in paneling except for the laundry room which was once part of the exterior.

I had no lead abatement training but read the basic guidelines. Many children have lived or stayed here over the years and I wonder f any got overexposed.
After I finished this room It is on average 10 to 15 degrees warmer. I primed the walls then finished with drywall lots of vacuuming with a heppa setup and wished I had tested myself for lead before I started the project.

its very nerve racking seeing the kids play around with the paint chips. I'd definitely have to agree with you on this one. play it safe always.

Mamas' don't let your babies grow up eatin' paint chips
Don't let em' paint condos and drive them old trucks
Let em' be doctors and lawyers and such
Mamas' don't let your babies grow up eatin' paint chips
Cause they'll never stay home and they're always alone
Even with someone they love

Anyone hear about that woman who ate a whole bowl full of wasabi (the real stuff), thinking it was guacamole? Ended up in the hospital and with a permanent predisposition to some heart issue in the future(I actually think it was called 'broken heart syndrome, not kidding). I love my wasabi, but I can't imagine having more than the tiniest amount and not recognizing what it was.

You know, I was really concerned about you when you went missing for a bit. I requested a welfare check to make sure one of your Hillbilly experiments didn't slip out of it's pickle jar and start feeding on your brains. That's a real demonstration of caring if I say so myself. And what do I get in return? Cliché comments about humping bark. Not fair. Just not fair.

Ok I'm sorry. I was a little cranky when I posted this because I was stuck in Berea all weekend. That'll ruin anyone's attitude.

A name like Berea and there is more than one??? Berea, KY is home to Berea College. A tuition free private university. I remember it from when my daughter was looking at colleges. The free tuition was the only thing that seemed attractive about that school. Otherwise I would have thought Berea to be some type of disease.
