Summary Featuring scientific studies on the matter, An Investigation as to the Danger of Poisoning from Lead discusses the effects, probability and causes of lead poisoning. Also known as plumbism or painter's colic, lead poisoning is caused by increased levels of the heavy metal lead in the body. The metal interferes with many organs, tissues and functions of the body, including the heart, bones, intestines, kidneys and reproductive system. The most common exposure to lead poisoning today comes from occupations like mining. Throughout history, lead was used in great amounts in cosmetics, paint, dinnerware and toys.
