This document proposes to summarize briefly the major public health problems associated with lead in the environment. A basic discussion of lead metabolism and toxicology is presented, followed by sections on diet and consumer goods and on ambient air, all of which deal primarily with general population exposures. Because industrial workers and children constitute two distinct exposure groups, they are disconstitute two distinct exposure groups, they are discussed in separate sections. (APCO abstract)
