What is in your ceiling dust? A whole history of air pollution is hanging over our heads, in the form of very fine dust accumulated in the ceiling cavity. It only takes an event such as home renovations or a freak hailstorm such as the one Sydney experienced last year to have this toxic cocktail contaminate the whole home and its occupants

In this new issue, LEAD Action News vol 7 no. 3, 1999 focuses on some previously under-estimated contributors to air pollution: woodsmoke and aircraft.

Also in this issue is an update on the Federal Government’s action plan on air toxics. Unfortunately, the funding of a service such as the Toxics Information and Referral Service of Australia, which had been proposed by The LEAD Group, is not part of the plan. (Indeed, the existence of the NSW funded Lead Advisory Service after March 2000 is at this stage uncertain).

LEAD Action News is the newsletter of The LEAD Group Inc., a non-profit community group working to eliminate childhood and foetal lead poisoning by the year 2012 and to protect the environment from lead.
