The National Safety Council/Environmental Health Center is a national, non-profit, environmental health organization dedicated to bringing the public, health, housing, and environmental communities together to combat childhood lead poisoning. A major cause of childhood lead poisoning is known to be old, deteriorating, lead-based paint (and the dust and contaminated soil that come from it) in 57 million residences in the United States. Established in 1992, NSC/EHC is committed to providing accurate, timely information on lead-poisoning prevention. The center disseminates several informational pamphlets and brochures including "Questions Parents Ask About Lead Poisoning,""Home Repairs and Renovations: What You Should Know About Lead-Based Paint," and "Testing Your Home For Lead."
