The study of hair and urine lead concentrations in urban populations of various age groups exposed to contaminating effects of industry and transport and the corresponding analysis of lead in ambient air and soil have made it possible to determine the percentage of subjects showing evidence of elevated lead bioconcentrations. The highest lead concentrations among children were found among those who resided near a copper smelter (18.2 micrograms/g), a lead-cadmium plant (31.1 micrograms/g), and… CONTINUE READING
