  • Abstract

    Lead was a key component in the medical sciences during its early days. Over the years, the toxic effects of lead have been studied in detail and have been withdrawn from the modern drugs. Lead poisoning has been recognized as a major public health risk, particularly in developing countries. Although various occupational and public health measures have been undertaken to control lead exposure, cases of lead poisoning are still reported. Exposure to lead produces various deleterious effects on the hematopoietic, renal, and reproductive and central nervous system, mainly through increased oxidative stress. During the early stages of evolution of the medical science, a range of metallic compounds was used. However, over the years, this trend has reduced due to the identification of the toxic effects of these substances. Unfortunately, unintentional ingestion of these heavy metals by industrial workers employed in paint, battery industry still remains a major occupational hazard.
