lead hazard
A health hazard resulting from the breakdown of lead paint or lead solder, and the creation of lead dust or lead in drinking water. When such lead is ingested, it can cause brain damage and other damage. A 1996 federal law, "Title X," and the ensuing federal regulations set standards for permissible levels of lead hazards.
