Editorial Reviews

Millstone (science policy, U. of Sussex) reports that with the removal of lead from gasoline, paint and old water pipes are the main dangers exposing children to the poison metal and the resulting damage to mental development. He presents previously unpublished government research on the toxicology and the impacts on human health, describes the US and UK regulatory regimes, and suggests further steps. He is motivated by impatience that both governments have known about the danger to children for over 20 years and have not taken adequate measures to protect them.
