Abstract

Lead (Pb) remains a serious threat to children’s health and development-elevated levels of Pb in the blood are associated with impaired cognitive, motor, behavioral, and physical abilities.(1) Even lead-exposed children with blood lead levels (BLLs) below the World Health Organization (WHO) guideline of 10 µg/dL for their entire lifetime experience measurable loss in cognition.(2) In response to health risks associated with BLLs below 10 µg/dL,(3-5) the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lowered the blood Pb reference value to 5 µg/dL in May 2012.
