The Indiana Department of Health is urging parents to have children under the age of 6 tested for lead exposure.

The state health department is partnering with other organizations in the state to provide information about the dangers of lead to families throughout Indiana.

Lead poisoning in Indiana often results from chipping or peeling lead paint that mixes with dust in the air.

Other sources of lead include contaminated soil, drinking water, and sometimes children’s toys and jewelry.
