  1. Lead in human blood and milk from nursing women living near a smelter in Mexico City.

    Article - En anglais

    Lead levels in breast milk and blood were determined in women living within a 200-m radius of 3 smelters in Mexico City.

    All samples were analyzed on a Perkin Elmer 460 atomic absorption spectrometer equipped with HGA 2200.

    The mean blood lead level was 45.88 mug/dl (SD 19.88 mug/dl), and the geometric mean of milk lead level was 2.47 mug/100 ml.

    The correlation coefficient of these two variables was 0.88.

    Using the mean value of lead found in breast milk, an infant of 5.5 kg would ingest 8.1 mug/kg/d in his diet.
