Worker Lead Exposure Linked to Cognitive Problems Later in Life

A new study in the January issue of Neuropsychology suggests that cumulative lead exposure may result in cognitive problems for workers later in life.
According to the study, “Association of Cumulative Lead and Neurocognitive Function in An Occupational Cohort,” both the developing brain and the aging brain can suffer from lead exposure. For older people, a buildup of lead from earlier exposure may be enough to result in greater cognitive problems after age 55.
