lead to long term consequences. The OCHP is advocating for the younger populations in their communities to ensure their health and safety. I am a parent as well so I think this is great step towards keeping our kids safe. A couple of park's in my community were shut down after high levels of arsenic were found in the soil. I am not aware of how often the soil is tested but it was very concerning to me as I used to go to these parks when I was a kid. So it is important that there are organizations on a larger scale that ensuring the children are safe within their communities regardless of where they live, play or attend school.

I know that my son was screened for lead before he started school so the pediatricians appear to be doing their part where I live and thankfully everythign was normal. This makes me think of the water crisis reported in Flint, Michigan and how that level of contamination with such severe health hazards was allowed to happen without appropriate government action to correct it. In the future I hope programs similar to the executive action signed by President Clinton are more
widespread and more effective in protecting citizens.ReplyReply to CommentoCollapse SubdiscussionSandra Camarillo ChapaSandra Camarillo ChapaJul 11, 2020Jul 11 at 8:09pmManage Discussion EntryTara,I agree with you that legislation is heading in the right direction. The health of childrenis most important. The public should be aware of any potential risks. It is critical for legislation to reduce any exposures or prevent them.
