      Chemical exposures during sensitive windows of development, mainly in utero and in the first few years of life, could have a role in chronic disease development. 1 .   Since children (to age 7) are more sensitive to lead's effects, most adverse effects of lead are often manifested at lower blood lead levels in children than in adults. (10) History suggests delayed language ability, slightly impaired hearing, short .

    Children’s exposure to air pollution is a special concern because their immune system and lungs are not fully developed when exposure begins, raising the possibility of different responses than seen in adults. In addition, children spend more time outside, where the concentrations of pollution from traffic, powerplants, and other combustion sources are generally higher.   Lead poisoning is a serious risk for young children. Exposure to old paints, water from lead pipes, and fumes from leaded fuels can cause lead to .

Measuring Lead Exposure in Infants, Children, and Other Sensitive Populations. National Research Council (US) Committee on Measuring Lead in Critical Populations. Washington (DC): National Academies Press (US); Lead is a ubiquitous toxic agent that is especially damaging to the young child and the developing fetus.

Lead is a ubiquitous toxicant. It is especially toxic to young children and the fetus, and it was estimated that in about 6 million children andfetuses in the United States were exposed to lead at concentrations to an extent that placed them at risk of adverse health effects (i.e., blood lead concentrations of at least 10 micrograms per deciliter (µg/dL) (CDC, ).

The purpose of this chapter is to discuss analytic methods children assess exposure to lead in sensitive populations. The toxic effects of lead are primarily biochemical, but rapidly expanding chemical research databases indicate that lead has adverse effects on multiple organ systems especially in infants and children.

The early evidence of exposure, expressed by the age of 6–12 months, shows up. Exposure to lead produces a variety of adverse health effects in sensitive populations through its impact on different organs and systems.

The nature of the effects is a complex function of such factors as the magnitude of exposure, the physiologic and behavioral characteristics of the exposed person, and the relative importance of the lead-injured organ or system to overall health and well-being.

Risk assessment, an approach for organizing information about hazards to health, safety, and the environment, provides a framework for gauging the threat to child health from environmental pollutants.

A qualitative risk assessment has 4 components: hazard identification, dose-response assessment, exposure assessment, and risk characterization.

In a risk assessment, consideration can be given. Council. Measuring lead exposure in infants, children, and other sensitive populations. Washington: National Academy Press; 5.
