Elevated blood-lead levels among children living in the rural Philippines
WHO Bulletin, Volume 85, Number 9, September 2007

This paper describes the prevalence of lead poisoning among these children living in a rural area that covers about one third of the Philippines. We explore the correlations of lead toxicity in this population and describe an environmental investigation to characterize an unexpectedly common toxic health hazard.
