Lead and Pregnancy – Protect Your Unborn Baby

Image

If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant you need to avoid exposure to lead while carrying your baby. If you were exposed to lead in the past, this can also be a problem as lead can be stored in your bones for 20 to 30 years and then be released to your developing baby during pregnancy. Be sure to talk to your medical provider about this.

  • Lead can affect the development of your unborn baby’s brain and nervous system. Your child can then have learning and behavior problems.
  • Lead can cause high blood pressure and complications during pregnancy.
  • Lead can cause your baby to be born prematurely or have a low birth weight. Such babies are at higher risks for illness.
  • Although rare, lead can also cause your pregnancy to end in a miscarriage or a still birth.

 You can get lead in your body from various sources. For more details on sources for lead exposure and links to safe work practices when working with lead please read http://nmhealth.org/eheb/documents/Lead/Lead%20and%20Pregnancy%20for%20web.pdf If you need to remove lead based paint from your home and can’t afford a professional EcoSolve Americas can help with Home Strip Paint and Varnish Remover.

Asbestos Health Risk In Your Textured Ceiling

Image

Asbestos has been in the past used in many industries like the building and construction industries. Its been used in ceiling and floor tiles, paints, coatings, adhesives, plastics, and more. In 1989, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned all new uses of asbestos; however, uses developed before 1989 are still allowed. People may be exposed to asbestos in their workplace, their communities, or their homes. If products containing asbestos are disturbed, tiny asbestos fibers are released into the air. When asbestos fibers are breathed in, they may get trapped in the lungs and remain there for a long time. Over time, these fibers can accumulate and cause scarring and inflammation which can affect breathing and lead to serious health problems, cancer, and death. One of the most common places to find asbestos in the home on the outside of the wall is in textured coatings watch this video for the pros and cons of removing contaminated textured and popcorn ceilings from your home. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJWNYVf_DnE&feature=plcp If you want to remove textured coating in your home but can not afford a professional EcoSolve Americas has the solution.
