Many times, lead dissolves into water and goes into the soil that way. This is why they banned lead bullets, people would shoot ducks and they would land in a pond or la…ke and poison it.
it poisons the plants growing in it
Since deforestation removes trees, the soil particles become detached and more rainwater can get in and cause landslides and flooding. I suppose less trees mean the ground is …more vulnerable to the elements. The soil can also lose its moisture, minerals and nutrients by being exposed
no, just carbon and clay, baked to make it hard, the more carbon the darker the writing
Yes Definately you will get lead poisoning because Lead Dust may go to your Body while Breathing Do you want more information Just go to website www.nrclpi.com The main routes… of exposure from lead is ingestion or inhalation that is absorbed by the gut. Wearing a respirator and washing afterwards greatly reduces immediate exposure. But keep the work area clean to avoid contaminating the rest of the house. An even worse exposure comes from burning/torching the lead paint because it becomes a gas/fume and is highly absorbed through the lungs. Keep heat guns on low temperature and do not use a propane torch.

Some of the factors are: Transport of wind, ice, or water. Sometimes it can be done by living animals; for instance, a bird, could be a factor or insects.
The dust bowl helped people appreciate the value of soil
The dust bowl led to depression. For many people.
The use of lead especially for underground cables is banned due to environmental issues. Lead in the environment and its effects on the health of people is a matter of great c…oncern to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). In a report to Congress, The Nature and Extent of Lead Poisoning in Children in the United States, published by ATSDR in July 1988, exposure to lead was identified as a serious public health problem. Soil is contaminated by lead from various sources (American Academy of Pediatrics, 1987). The accumulation of lead in soil is primarily a function of the rate of deposition. Studies on the effects of lead in children have demonstrated a relationship between exposure to lead and a variety of adverse health effects. These effects include impaired mental and physical development, decreased heme biosynthesis, elevated hearing threshold, and decreased serum levels of vitamin D
There is more to it then just over farming, due to World War 1. Other reason's where the weather, (drought), and the federal government's Agricultural Adjustment Act (AAA). Th…e 'AAA' paid farmers to not grow crops, not raise pig's and to not produce milk and butter. The over production of wheat during WW1, caused many farmers to plow up the grazing fields, that were used for livestock, to plant wheat. After the was the prices dropped and the farmer's tried to raise livestock again, but now on land that couldn't support it. At this time the drought hit. Also during this time the 'AAA' attempted to artificially raise the price of milk, butter, wheat , and meat by paying farmers NOT to grow crop's, kill off millions of pig's and not to produce dairy products which meant killing off multitudes of dairy cows. What occurred was a lengthening of the Depression and overpriced food product's that a large portion of the people already had difficulty buying. I hope this helps
You can find out your garden's lead content by having your soil tested. You can do this by contacting a local university, or contacting the health department to see what local… resources you have.
In Dust Bowl
The dust bowl the occurred in prairie states which included Kansas and Oklahoma. The prairies were covered with prairie plants, mostly grass. This formed a natural sod which w…as rather deep. The sod kept the soil in place during times of low rainfall. When farmers came to this area they plowed up the sod exposing the soil. For this reason they were called 'sod busters'. In the 30s a large drought occurred. When winds blew, soil was picked up and blew about. More and more soil was picked up and blown about. This time was called the dirty 30s. Sometimes people would get the soil blown in their eyes and never saw again. The dirt was blown as far as Washington DC. Washington finally came up with the Soil Conservation Act. Farming practices were changed to preserve the soil. Teddy Roosevelt was President at this time.
