A human in vivo model for the determination of lead bioavailability using stable isotope dilution.

Beverages stored in lead-crystal glass accumulate extraordinary concentrations of lead. We obtained a lead-crystal decanter manufactured with lead from Australia, where the ratio of 206Pb/207Pb is distinctly different from that in the United States. We sought to determine the bioavailability of crystal-derived lead, using the technique of stable isotope… CONTINUE READING
