Lead (Pb) particles that detach from the plumbing and contaminate drinking water can pose a significant health threat, which is often underestimated. Laboratory simulation of this problem revealed that standard quantification protocols in the US may miss 80% of the lead present in the water. At the same time, a significant fraction of this undetected particulate lead may be bioavailable when ingested. A critical review of the Washington DC lead-in-water crisis suggested that lead in water mightdoi:10.30955/gnj.000607 fatcat:adw7uvh2zvcdhnrchpzpneu3ya
