Lead is a potent toxin that can damage the nervous systems of embryos, breastfed infants, and young children.

Long-term exposure to arsenic increases the risk of cancers of the skin, lungs, bladder, kidneys, and liver.

Children are also more likely to eat soiled food, to eat with dirty hands, and to put things in their mouths.

All these behaviours are normal, but they do add up to a surprising amount of soil, more than a gram each day in some children.

There's not much argument that some people eat dirt as a part of a rare but real eating disorder.

Eating dirt can lead to gastrointestinal problems such as constipation, abdominal pain, vomiting, loss of appetite, and diarrhea.

Normal children will rarely eat enough soil to get into this kind of trouble.
