||The relationship between food intake and blood lead concentration in 382 male steel workers occupationally exposed to lead, aged 18-55 years, was investigated. Blood lead concentrations were significantly lower in workers with high intake of pulses, salad and calcium-containing foods, and also in workers with active intake of potatoes and vegetables. This seems to indicate that active intake of foods containing vitamins and trace metals could be an important factor in maintaining the health of workers occupationally exposed to heavy metals such as lead.
