Low-level environmental lead exposure and intellectual impairment in children — The current concepts of risk assessment
International Journal of Occupational Medicine and Environmental Health
AbstractLead is an environmental contaminant. The majority of epidemiological research on the health effects of lead has been focused on children, because they are more vulnerable to lead than adults. In children, an elevated blood lead (B-Pb) is associated with reduced Intelligence Quotient (IQ) score. This paper summarizes the current opinions on the assessment of the health risk connected with the children's environmental exposure to lead. The B-Pb level of concern of 100 μg/l proposed bydoi:10.2478/s13382-011-0009-z pmid:21468897 fatcat:co6uty3igvcgjjkgsvlhx26j7m
