How does this affect health? Lead paint can poison, resulting in brain damage and other health problems, especially for young children. Leaking roofs and plumbing can create conditions for mildew and mold and for roach infestations, exacerbating respiratory problems.

How does this affect health? Rotten floors can collapse, resulting in cuts and broken bones. Faulty electrical wiring and unsafe furnaces can cause fires, resulting in smoke inhalation and burns. Deteriorating vacant houses can create conditions for crime, resulting in injuries and even violent death.
