Rats were exposed for ten months to 60 ppm of lead (Pb, as acetate) in drinking water to further assess cardiovascular effects of chronic Pb exposure. At the end of the treatment, mean blood Pb was 3.1+/-0.3 microg/dL in the control rats and 22.8+/-1.2 microg/dL in the Pb-exposed rats (means+/-SE, n=12 in each group); these values were not comparable to… CONTINUE READING
