First publication of its kind to present current, wide-ranging data on the effects of exposure to lead from paint, soil and dust. Features the latest results of health effects studies, environmental assessments, control and intervention studies, analytical methods development, and evaluation and quality assurance program development.
28 comprehensive peer-reviewed papers cover the following key areas:
Health Risks -- one paper on childhood lead exposure; one on the experimental use of immature swine to track G-I lead absorption.
Exposure Studies -- Eight papers explore the pathways and extent of exposure to lead, concentrating on lead-based paint in housing, lead in soil and dust samples, the relationship between blood-lead levels and lead in the environment,and the results of lead-paint abatement programs.
Control Measures -- The full range of control measures necessary to reduce or eliminate lead exposure is discussed in three papers.
Measurement Methods -- Seven papers evaluate diverse instrumental measurement techniques for determining lead levels.
Quality Assurance -- The development of standardized materials and methods to insure reliable lead measurements is discussed in five papers.
Laboratory and Field Measurement Accreditation -- The criteria and objectives for three different laboratory accreditation programs are explained.
