NEXT:

INDIANA – Doctors, professionals and many others in Indiana are petitioning to lower the lead levels so that Public Health agencies take action when kids are at risk.

Lowering the threshold would allow officials to get involved sooner.

As of 2019 Indiana’s required threshold is 10 micrograms of lead per deciliter, which is twice as high as what the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends.
