There can be a host of causes behind a brain injury. For example, you can have a brain injury due to trauma or toxic exposure. No matter what factor causes a brain injury, the result is dangerous. Toxic exposure can contribute to many different types of brain injuries, such as short-term memory loss, dementia, social disorders and so on.
Doctors have not found much evidence that materials, such as asbestos and toxic mold can contribute to brain injuries. In fact, the bulk of toxic substances that have been found to cause injury to the brain include heavy metals, such as lead.
Of all the substances, lead is considered most dangerous for kids. According to studies, lead can affect the development of the kids’ brain. After the discovery of harm lead can cause to the brain, laws were formulated in order to test toys and other things made of lead.
