The concurrent decline of soil lead and children’s blood lead in New Orleans
TLDR
The findings indicate that decreasing Pb in topsoil is an important factor in the continuous decline of children’s BPb, and the most contaminated urban communities, usually inhabited by vulnerable populations, require further reductions of top soil Pb to fulfill primary prevention for the nation's children.
Lead contamination of public drinking water and academic achievements among children in Massachusetts: a panel study
Background Public drinking water can be an important source exposure to lead, which can affect children’s cognitive development and academic performance. Few studies have looked at the impact of lead
Toxic Truth: Lead and Fertility
Using U.S county level data on lead in air for 1978-1988 and lead in topsoil in the 2000s, this paper examines the impact of lead exposure on a critical human function with societal implications –
Toxic Truth: Lead and Fertility
Using US county-level data on lead in air for 1978–88, this paper provides the first causal evidence on the effects of airborne lead exposure on the general fertility rate and the completed fertility
Soil toxicants that potentially affect children's health.
Airborne Lead (Pb) From Abandoned Mine Waste in Northeastern Oklahoma, USA
TLDR
This study is the first attempt to evaluate the significance of Pb‐laden airborne particulate matter from a large‐scale abandoned mining area where the humans are particularly vulnerable to metal exposure and it found that chat piles in Picher contain ~20% and 6% of fine particles that are subjective to windborne transport and human inhalation, respectively, and these fine particles contain disproportionally high concentrations of PB.
Neighborhood and the Built Environment
TLDR
This chapter focuses on how the built environment involves the social, political, and health resources in a patient’s community shapes -- and responds to -- patients’ clinical presentations to the emergency department.

Linking source and effect: resuspended soil lead, air lead, and children's blood lead levels in Detroit, Michigan.
TLDR
Overall, the resuspension of Pb contaminated soil explains observed seasonal variation in child BLLs.
Prevention of Childhood Lead Toxicity
TLDR
Primary prevention should be the focus of policy on childhood lead toxicity, and reducing sources of lead in the environment, including lead in housing, soil, water, and consumer products, has been shown to be cost-beneficial.
Environmental exposures to lead and urban children's blood lead levels.
TLDR
Environmental sources of lead, including house-dust, soil lead, and water lead, were independently associated with children's blood lead levels and the progressive lowering of standards for lead-contaminated water as the definition of undue lead exposure has been modified is supported.

Geochemical legacies and the future health of cities: A tale of two neurotoxins in urban soils
TLDR
There is a paradigmatic shift from reaction to and remediation of acute exposures towards a more nuanced understanding of the dynamic cycling of persistent environmental contaminants with resultant widespread and chronic exposure of inner-city dwellers, leading to chronic toxic illness and disability at substantial human and social cost.

TLDR
Low-level exposure to lead during early childhood is inversely associated with neuropsychological development through the first seven years of life.
Lead Exposures in U.S. Children, 2008: Implications for Prevention
TLDR
Achieving the 2010 public health goal to eliminate pediatric elevated blood lead levels (EBLs) by 2010 requires maintaining current efforts, especially programs addressing lead paint, while developing interventions that prevent exposure before children are poisoned.
