||The relationship between subjective symptoms and food intake in 286 male steel-workers occupationally exposed to lead, aged 18-55 years, was investigated. Workers with subjective symptoms of lead poisoning such as tiredness and dullness were getting significantly lower intakes of vegetables, fruits and vitamin C-containing foods. Lower intakes of vitamin B1- or calcium-containing foods also increased these subjective symptoms in the workers. This suggests that active intake of protein and carbohydrate, and of vitamin-rich foods such as vegetables and fruits, could be useful for reducing subjective symptoms and maintaining the general health of steel workers
