Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Intense lead exposure has been linked since antiquity to serious, sometimes lethal disturbances in cardiac rhythmicity and contractile function. More subtle effects have been reported following lead exposure at lower levels; in some instances effects have been reported at levels approaching those encountered passively in the general environment (1-6). These observations suggest that acute and chronic lead exposure over a relatively broad dose range may be associated with significant changes in the function of the cardiovascular system.
