Relative exposure of children to lead from dust and drinking water.
The Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde Health Autority, in the North West of England, could be described as a « low-level lead exposure area ».
Primary sources of lead exposure are atmospheric fallout (both indoors and outdoors) and potable water consumption.
Deciduous teeth were collected from children living in this area as were water samples and outdoor dust samples.
Both total lead concentrations and 206Pb:207Pb ratios were determined for a defined subset of teeth.
Significant differences in the total lead concentrations were found for teeth collected from children resident in different targeted areas (i.e., Blackpool, Fleetwood, and Garstang).
