Don't drink the lead

Chicago, IL
Don't drink the lead

The United States Congress banned the use of lead solder and restricted the lead content of faucets and pipes in 1986. However, homes built prior to the ban may still have plumbing that contains lead.
The EPA says 10% to 20% of the typical adult’s exposure to lead comes from contaminated drinking water. But the number is much higher for babies. 40% to 60% of their exposure to lead comes from water because it gets mixed with the formula they drink.
