The actual toll lead poisoning takes on society cannot be measured fully due to the silent nature of health effects, such as subtle intellectual deficits and neurological damage, caused by chronic low-level exposures. This book covers every major topic on the subject, including lead poisoning in children, sources of contamination, state-of-the-art sampling and analytical measurement methods, the newest studies on low-cost abatement methods, and much more.

This reference is the most comprehensive presentation of issues currently available under one cover.The text is divided into three major parts. Part I provides insights from studies assessing lead exposures from paint, dust, soil, and lead battery recycling operations. The second part is a unique collection of strategic federal policy statements from the U.S. EPA, HUD, and HEW-CDC.

It details the National Implementation Plan as well as a local governments efforts to provide low-cost effective risk communication and public outreach to the community. The next part offers seven chapters on analytical issues in the measurement of lead in blood, paint, dust, and soils. Part IV, Sampling Methods and Statistical Issues, rounds out the technical portion of the volume. The relationships among lead levels in biological and environmental media are investigated and the interpretive problems discussed.

The use of multi-element analysis of environmental samples as an approach to investigate sources is described.The book finishes with its most unique feature-OPPTs Check Our Kids for Lead Program, one organizations effort to empower its employees to make a personal difference in confronting the problem of lead poisoning in children.

The Program serves as a model for other government organizations (federal, state, and local), university and community organizations, and corporations to educate them and take personal and corporate responsibility for addressing this important and environmental health problem.
