Therefore, blood-lead concentration is often used in epidemiologic and toxicological studies as an index of exposure and body burden for children.

Paint that contains lead can pose a health threat through various routes of exposure. House dust is the most common exposure pathway through which children are exposed to lead-based paint hazards.

Lead poisoning occurs when a person (often a young child) inhales or swallows lead and it accumulates in the person’s body. While the NY Public Health Law has defined lead poisoning as occurring at a level of 10 µg/dL (micrograms of lead per deciliter of whole blood) for purposes of overall health policy, the overwhelming consensus in the scientific community is that even low-dose lead.

Reading the article on childhood lead poisoning by Hanna-Attisha et al. 10 in the February issue of the American Journal of Public Health reminded me that GM not only tried to defeat its workers, but also the environment in which they, and all of us, live.

The latter never had chance to organize and resist. Linked by roads, rivers, and streams by the s, Flint and the area around it.

a) Exposure to lead in the general population occurs from inhalation of contaminated air and dust of various types or ingestion of food and water containing lead with a fairly even split between ingestion and inhalation exposure % of ingested lead is absorbed by adults with less than 5% retained.

Children, however, absorb approximately 50% of ingested lead and retain about 30%. Recent events have drawn increased attention to potential lead exposures from contaminated drinking water.

Further, homes with older infrastructure are at greatest risk due to the presence of the disinfectant chemical chloramine, which can leach lead from older pipes.

There is a growing need to determine the extent of lead leaching especially within vulnerable communities and homes with by: 2. Cholinesterase.

Cholinesterase is a family of enzymes present in the central nervous system, particularly in nervous tissue, muscle and red cells, which catalyze the hydrolysis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine into choline and acetic acid (Figure ), a reaction necessary to allow a cholinergic neuron to return to its resting state after activation [95].
