Residential Sources of Lead
Perhaps surprisingly, the levels of lead found in blood can still be too high in some parts of Canada. A study of homes in Saint John, New Brunswick compared homes occupied by people with high blood lead levels with those having low levels. The objective of the study was to determine if the variation in levels could be attributed to housing factors. The data clearly showed the difference to be related to the levels of lead in the tap water. Generally, people in high blood lead level houses also tended to have higher levels in all other factors: food, dust, soil and paint.
