Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Previous studies have shown that children?s blood lead concentrations tend to increase during hot summer months. In this issue, Lih-Ming Yiin and colleagues from the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute at Rutgers University and the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in Piscataway, New Jersey, explore whether some of this elevation can be explained by seasonal increases in the amount of lead in residential house dust [EHP 108:177?182]. Yiin and colleagues compared blood lead concentrations measured in children aged 6?32 months with three residential dust lead variables: concentrations of lead in dust obtained from floors, sills, and carpets; dust loading rates, which describe the amounts of dust typically found in each of these areas; and lead loading rates, described as the product of the dust loading rate and the lead concentration.
