Inorganic Lead Exposure: Metabolism and Intoxication offers a comprehensive review of the evolution of scientific knowledge and the current state of the art in relation to lead interaction with the environment and the mammalian body. The authors focus on the sources of lead pollution to which humans are exposed during daily and working life, and on lead uptake, distribution, and excretion, clarifying our knowledge of the toxicity of this metal. They also provide a highly detailed description of saturnism and a thorough analysis of its critical effects on target organs.
