•Concentration of lead in the air in major cities is now largely below limits of detection
•But scientists warn contaminated soil and dust is causing problems in backyards
•Vets say they're seeing more cases of backyard chickens with lead poisoning

Before 1970, paints containing high levels of lead were used in many Australian houses. Exposure to lead is a health hazard. Even small amounts of dust or chips of paint containing lead, generated during minor home repairs, can be a health risk.
