Intelligence and Lead Toxins in Rural Children.
Thatcher, R. W.; And Others
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v16 n6 p355-59 Jun-Jul 1983
Hair lead content, intelligence tests, school achievement, and motor impairment assessments were obtained from 149 children aged 5 to 16. Hair lead concentration significantly discriminated between groups and significantly predicted IQ scores, independent of group classifications. Regression analyses showed a significant negative correlation between lead and intellectual functioning. (Author/CL)
