Abstract A comprehensive environmental study was carried out for correlation of lead in multiple sources with the increased blood lead of urban children. In the three age groups, 2-5, 10-12, and 14-18 years, urban children had higher blood leads than their suburban counterparts, although the difference decreased with age. The increased blood lead correlated with increased lead in the urban dustfall, yard soil and boot tray lead. There was no significant urban-suburban difference in air lead, housedust lead, available paint chips or lead in milk and water. Lead in yard dirt and blood lead both correlated with residential proximity to traffic. Although all blood lead were below 40 micrograms/dustfall lead, there was a significant linear decrease in red cell (rbc) membrane Na/K ATPase as blood lead increased; children with a blood lead above 20 micrograms/dustfall lead had decreased activity of rbc glutathione and increased rbc G-6-PD and 6-PGD. The increase in the latter two enzymes supports decreased rbc survival at the level of lead exposure of urban children.
