A recent Associated Press article reports that a study conducted at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center estimated that lead levels of more than 1.3 micrograms per deciliter may account for more than 500,000 cases of ADHD among children ages 8 to 15 nationwide.

This research is consistent with previous findings. A recent article in Science Daily on a similar study conducted in 2007 by Michigan State University provides additional information on this topic. Parents who suspect their child may have been exposed to lead around their home or some other location should share their information with their child’s physician.
