Resumen Whether blood pressure is higher among those occupationally exposed to low concentrations of lead is a matter of interest in recent epidemiological studies. To explore this issue, 348 male workers in a vinyl chloride-manufacturing company and a newspaper company were examined. Both systolic and diastolic blood pressure appeared to increase with age and obesity. Blood levels decreased as obesity increased. Systolic blood pressure was higher among those with high blood lead levels (7µg/dL or more), when they were both young (less than 43 years old) and less obese (less than 3.5% of the obesity index). Systolic and diastolic blood pressure appeared to be higher among those with high blood lead levels when they were obese, irrespective of age. Partial correlation coefficients were calculated.
