  1. Fulltext. Soil lead abatement and children's blood lead levels in an urban setting.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objective The effect of abating soil lead was assessed among Baltimore children.

    The hypothesis was that a reduction of 1000 parts per million would reduce children's blood lead levels by a 0.14 to 0.29 mol/L (3-6 mug/dL).

    Methods

    In 2 neighbonhoods (study and control), 18% children completed the protocol.

    In the study area, contaminated soil was replaced with clean soil.

    Results

    Soil lead abatement in this study did not lower children's blood lead.

    Conclusions

    Although it did not show an effect in this study, soil lead abatement may be useful in certain areas.
