Estimation of lead ingestion with the diet in early infancy


, : Estimation of lead ingestion with the diet in early infancy. Igiene Moderna 96(5): 131-141

Ingestion of lead from the diet by Italian infants during the first year of life was estimated by analysis of the Pb content of 720 samples of Italian and imported baby foods by atomic absorption spectrophotometry. Pb values, 0.0122 to 0.1448 mg/kg, were relatively low. Highest mean values were for homogenized fruit and fruit juices. Estimated mean weekly intake of Pb at 1 week and 1, 5, 7 and 12 months old was 22.61, 37.73, 50.68, 104.44 and 155.26 micro g.
