Excerpt: Recent information on the nature and extent of lead toxicity has presented a challenge for preventing disease that continues to exceed our ability to formulate effective public health and environmental policy. It can be claimed that of the major environmental factors in human disease, more has been done worldwide to reduce sources of lead exposure than for any other single toxicant. Although overall the net usage of lead has not substantially declined in the world economy, some of the more dispersive and more directly available sources of lead in the general environment have been controlled in several countries to an extent, through such major actions as reducing the allowable concentmtions of lead in paint, automotive fuels, and certain canning and printing materials. These control measures have been associated with subsequent reductions in median blood lead levels, as demonstrated in surveys conducted in the U.S., U.K., and other countries (1-3).
