In brief: Old pAint/Ocupation

In the us, the major risk to children is from lead-based paints and soil and dust contaminated with lead-based paint.
Also lead jewelry, toys, and other lead items. For adults, the primary source of lead exposure is occupational (such as scraping off old lead paint, smelters, battery manufacturing, and radiator repair) rather than ingestion, ayurvedic home remedies contamination.

In brief: At risk for plumbism

Those most at risk are people who are in construction.
When they tear down a wall, the paint dust that may contain lead is released and inhaled. Always wear a mask when working where dust is produced.Workers in battery rendering plants may be exposed to lead from the batteries.
