Association between Bone Lead Concentration and Aggression in Youth from a Sub-Cohort of the Birth to Twenty Cohort

A one-microgram-per-gram increase in bone lead was found to increase the score for all four scales of aggression, but significantly only for anger, which provides a preliminary overview of the relationship between cumulative lead exposure and behavioural problems such as aggression.

Is There a Relationship between Lead Exposure and Aggressive Behavior in Shooters?

Shooter have a significantly higher BLL and aggressiveness compared to archers, however, elevated blood lead levels were significantly associated with hostility only, which needs to be put in place to prevent continued exposure.

Study protocol to examine the relationship between environmental exposure to lead and blood lead levels among children from day-care centres in Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality

The study will generate information on environmental lead exposure among vulnerable children (2–5 years), and it will promote public health action to prevent long-term exposure in day-care centres to achieve the objectives of the study.

Determining the Effectiveness of Compassion-focused Treatment Package, Emotion-focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy on Distress Tolerance among Adolescents with Aggressive Behaviors: A Pilot Study

Determining the Effectiveness of Compassion-focused Treatment Package, Emotion-focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy on Distress Tolerance among Adolescents with Aggressive Behaviors:

The role of the South African Medical Research Council in reducing lead exposure and preventing lead poisoning in South Africa.

Elevated risks of lead exposure in subsistence fishing and mining communities, users of arms and ammunition, those ingesting certain traditional medicines, and users of certain ceramicware and artisanal cooking pots are revealed.

The GCAG Haplotype of the CRHBP Gene May Decrease the Risk for Robbery Behavior Among the Han Chinese.

The rs328 97 alleles and the haplotypes containing the rs32897 alleles, including GCAG and GTAG, may be factors associated with committing robbery in the Hunan Han population, and could be used to provide clinical counseling with regard to aggressive behavior, but further studies including multiple ethnicities are needed.

Children who are at highest risk of not learning to regulate physical aggression in early childhood have mothers with a history of antisocial behaviour during their school years, mothers who start childbearing early and who smoke during pregnancy, and parents who have low income and have serious problems living together.

Lead exposure is associated with increased risk for antisocial and delinquent behavior, and the effect follows a developmental course.

Lifetime low-level exposure to environmental lead and children's emotional and behavioral development at ages 11-13 years. The Port Pirie Cohort Study.

The Port Pirie Cohort Study is the first study to monitor prospectively the association between lifetime blood lead exposure and the prevalence of emotional and behavioral problems experienced by children, and regression modeling predicted that for a hypothetical increase in lifetime lead exposure from 10 to 30 microg/dl, the externalizing behavior problem score would increase.

This study suggests that lead exposure in childhood predicts intellectual functioning in young adulthood, and suggests that school-age lead exposure may represent a period of increased susceptibility.
