||Effect of lead on blood pressure in occupationally nonexposed men
||June 1995, Vol.27, No.6, p.897-903. 18 ref.
||In a survey of 507 males with no occupational exposure to lead, the effects of age, weight, height, alcohol intake, nicotine consumption and blood lead on blood pressure were investigated. Both the diastolic and systolic blood pressure were significantly influenced by the body mass index, age and alcohol. A significant effect of lead could only be found for diastolic blood pressure. Results indicate that even in low concentrations, the influence of lead on diastolic blood pressure may be significant in this group of middle-aged men.
