"Substantial progress has been made over the past 4 decades in reducing the number of children with elevated blood lead levels. These reductions reflect the impact of strategies coordinated and implemented at national, state, and local levels.
They include elimination of lead in vehicle emissions, elimination of lead paint hazards in housing, reduction in lead concentrations in air, water, and consumer products marketed to children, and identification and increased screening of populations at high risk."
