A Baltimore jury has awarded nearly $2.1 million to a 17-year-old city youth who was allegedly poisoned by lead paint in the 1990s when he was a toddler in an East Baltimore rental home. The judgment against Elliot Dackman and the estates of Sandra and Bernard Dackman came Friday in Baltimore Circuit Court, at the end of the weeklong trial of a lawsuit brought on behalf of Daquantay Robinson by his mother, Tiesha Robinson. The jury verdict shows the long-running tide of litigation over the widespread use of lead-based paint in Baltimore's older rental housing has yet to ebb, according to Bruce Powell, the Robinsons' lawyer.

Once parents have finished vetting toys for the holiday season, they should take at least one more precaution to safeguard their children from exposure to lead: Remove their shoes. The lead in toys amounts to a mere speck compared with the tons of dust spoiling the environment because of lead-based paints and leaded gasoline of generations past. Merely leaving your shoes at the door can notably reduce the risk of exposure, because tracking in the substance remains a surprisingly common route of contamination even today.

More than 200 chemicals -- many found in urban air and everyday consumer products -- caused breast cancer in animal tests, according to a compilation of scientific reports published today. Writing in a publication of the American Cancer Society, researchers said that reducing exposure to the compounds could prevent many women from developing the disease. The research team from five institutions analyzed a growing body of evidence that links environmental contaminants to breast cancer, the leading killer of U.S. women in their late 30s to early 50s. Experts say that family history and genes are responsible for a small percentage of breast cancer cases but that environmental or lifestyle factors such as diet are probably involved in the vast majority.

Baseball's All-Star Game meant a great deal to me when I was a young fan. So it saddens me to see what an embattled institution it's become. The numbers are undeniable. As SI.com's Richard Deitsch noted Monday , last year's television audience of 11 million was down 61 percent from the 28 million who watched in 1985. That's a meaningful comparison for me, because 1985 lay right in the heart of my romance with the midsummer classic. I was 9 years old and obsessed with the sport.

Your coverage of the 2014 General Assembly session failed to mention an important bill that was passed to create a database for collecting, assessing and reporting pesticide use ( "Wage Hike, new marijuana bills OK'd as session ends," April 8). Each year pesticide exposure poisons tens of thousands of farmworkers in Maryland and across the country, and it can cause nausea, blindness, cancer, infertility and even death. These injuries, illnesses and deaths are preventable. A well-designed system to track the use of pesticides will provide health researchers with better information on exposure to pesticides throughout Maryland and help us understand the relationship between exposure and illness.

When the winter Olympics gets underway next month in Sochi, Russia, Under Armour's logo will be seen by millions of viewers around the globe as the Baltimore-based brand sponsors two U.S. teams and another from Canada. The Olympic sponsorships - the greatest exposure yet for Under Armour at any winter games - could pay off not only in brand awareness, but in stronger sales and profits, company officials say. They hope wins by sponsored athletes or even just the exposure will reinforce the company's mantra of "making all athletes better" in consumers' minds.
