    children exposed to lead in fairly high quantities.  For adults, lead can be dangerous but there is nothing I know of showing even correlation between adult lead exposure and violence let alone causation which has not really been shown in kids either but knowing what we do about lead, it is a good idea to avoid exposure with safety equipment....

     So I wouldnt worry much about adult training or teachers training and their lead exposure....

    It is worth it to go the extra step of a mask for the little ones but I dont see the point as an adult unless shooting indoors on a range with inadequate ventilation.....

    When casting or tumbling, I use a fan to blow any airborne particles away and never do either in the house to avoid contaminating other surfaces as well as keeping careful control of the dross and recycling it as a hazardous waste as the dross contains the worst of the dangerous compounds....
