Lead paint in gunpowder and ammunition could lead to health problems in some people, and some researchers are concerned about the safety of it.
The American Chemistry Council and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers are asking Congress to establish a task force to study lead paint in the lead-containing paint used in the United States.
The task force, which is headed by the head of the American Chemistry Society and chaired by Republican Rep. Mike Simpson of Idaho, is looking into whether the paint is safe to use, or whether there are safety risks associated with the use of lead paint.
The panel of experts is looking at whether lead paint could cause problems with blood and nervous system health.
Lead paint contains lead, a neurotoxin, and the chemical is a neurotoxic.
The chemicals in lead paint are toxic to the brain and immune system.
Lead can cause changes in the way the brain works, as well as other problems in the body.
The AICHE and the AAPE have asked the Environmental Protection Agency and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to investigate whether lead is linked to health concerns.
A lead paint canister containing lead paint is seen in a storage room at a manufacturer of lead-based paint in New York.
A group of people holds a lead paint paint can in their hands in New Jersey on October 7, 2018.
The EPA is not releasing any data on the health effects of lead.
The agency said in its most recent National Ambient Air Quality Index that there was no significant increase in lead exposure in the U.S. between 1999 and 2017, but it said that exposure to lead paint was a concern.
Lead was banned in the 1950s but has been widely used since the 1970s in gun and bullet casings.
Lead is used as a primer in bullets, paint, gun parts and paint stripper.
