In brief: Avoid ingesting lead

Really? I wasn't sure if this was a serious question.
Fortunately, most sources of lead have been identified and all but removed from the environment. Others are clearly marked on labels so always read the warnings of household chemicals. Google "lead exposure" for more information.
