Blood lead as a cardiovascular risk factor.
Many epidemiologic and experimental animal studies support the hypothesis of there being a causal association between lead exposure and increased blood pressure/cardiovascular disease.
This study includes 1,052 men and women from Copenhagen County, Denmark, who were examined in 1976 and 1981; in 1987, only the men were examined.
Blood lead fell by approximately 40% for the men during the 11-year period and by approximately 30% for the women during the first 5-year period.
There was a univariate association between systolic blood pressure and blood lead for bothsexes in 1976, but it disappeared at the following examinations.
