Selected Bibliography on Lead Poisoning in Children.
Lin-Fu, Jane S., Comp.
This comprehensive bibliography was prepared in response to the growing interest in the problem of childhood lead poisoning. Most of the papers noted are from the pediatric literature and include only those published in English. A limited number of papers on experiments in laboratory animals are cited. Documents are grouped under several general headings according to their main emphasis or topic of investigation: epidemiology; causes of lead poisoning; detection and indices of exposure; metabolism; metabolic disturbances and toxicity; pica; and prevention, treatment, and management. Since many of the papers cover several related topics, cross-references are given at the end of each section. Over 200 items are listed, covering the period 1942-1971. The bibliography would be useful as a reference source for libraries and/or those working in community health programs. (BL)
