Title Lead in hair among exposed workers
Bibliographic information Jan. 1972, Vol.33, No.1, p.31-34. Illus. 6 ref.
Abstract 67 workers employed in lead and tin can factories were examined medically and biochemically. Lead concentrations were determined in blood, urine and hair, and a correlation was found between levels of lead in hair and the biochemical and medical findings. A lead in hair of more than 30µg/g is a sign of excessive lead exposure.
