Societal benefits of reducing lead exposure.
While sophistication in public health research has been increasing substantially in the past few decades, sophistication in decision making about health and environmental issues has not been increasing in parallel.
Measures that are inexpensive tend to be implemented and measures that are expensive tend not to be emplemented by makers of public policy.
That is often independent of the degree of public health protection afforded by the measures.
Understanding and addressing this pattern is crucial to the control of lead exposure of critical populations.
