Lead can be dangerous for men, women and children – especially young children and pregnant or breasfeeding women. It causes intellectual disability in children, increases heart disease and stroke risks in men and affects the developing foetus in pregnant women, besides other health effects.

Lead exposure comes from paint, water, food toys, costume jewellery, crockery and other household products.
