BACKGROUND Blood lead concentration has been associated with mortality from different causes in several studies. Many effects of lead exposure that might increase risk of death are likely to result from cumulative exposure, for which bone lead is a better biomarker than blood lead. The association between bone lead levels and mortality has not been explored. METHODS AND RESULTS We prospectively assessed the association between both blood lead and bone lead, analyzed with the use of K-shell x… CONTINUE READING
