Human exposure comes from lead-contaminated air, dust,soil, water and food and through inhalation and ingestion. Recent human exposure has arisen predominantly from the widespread use of leaded gasoline. Occupations in which the highest potential exposure to lead exists include mining primary and secondary smelting, production of lead-acid batteries, pigment production, construction and demolition.
