Evaluation of hazards caused by effects of lead on preschool children living near a copper-smelting plant



Evaluation of hazards caused by effects of lead on preschool children living near a copper-smelting plant



Meditsina Truda i Promyshlennaia Ekologiia 1999(12): 32-37



The studies conducted in Krasnouralsk (Sverdlovsk region) proved that environmental pollution with lead in the area subjected to releases by copper-melting enterprise creates significant risk of lead accumulation in preschoolers especially prone to unfavorable factors. Considering various environmental lead sources, biokinetic analog formation reliably forecasts serum lead levels. Soil polluted with lead, as the analog considers, is the most important environmental lead source. The authors suggest a system of prophylactic measures based on analysis of children's health risk caused by environmental pollution with lead.
