A study published in the March issue of the Medical Surveillance Monthly Report found out that several changes at firing ranges can potentially decrease blood lead levels. Lead in the blood can be toxic not only to troops who use the facilities but to their family members too. Their family members can be exposed to lead, if the particles that have accumulated on the skin, equipment, and clothing during firearms training are not removed before service members enter their vehicles or homes. Lead exposure can cause brain and nervous system damage, delayed growth and development, and other health problems to children and can cause high blood pressure, joint and muscle pain, headaches, abdominal pain, etc. to adults.
