What are the most common sources of lead exposure today?

The most common source of lead exposure in the United States today is lead-based paint in older homes and structures that were built prior to 1978 – specifically between the 40s and 60s. Other common sources of lead exposure include contaminated soil, household dust, drinking water that runs through lead pipes, lead crystal, and lead-glazed pottery.
