Environmental lead and children's intelligence : a systematic review of the epidemiological evidence.
To quantify the magnitude of the relation between full scale IQ in children aged 5 or more and their body burden of lead.
Design-A systematic review of 26 epidemiological studies since 1979 : prospective studies of birth cohorts, cross sectional studies of blood lead, and cross sectional studies of tooth lead.
Setting-General populations of children =5 years
Main outcome measures-For each study, the regression coefficient of IQ on lead, after adjustment for confounders when possible, was used to derive the estimated change in IQ for a specific doubling of either blood or tooth lead.
