Lead Exposure Kills More Americans Than Cancer: 412,000 Per Year

A bombshell study published in The Lancet medical journal finds that low-level lead exposure is responsible for the deaths of 412,000 Americans each year, primarily from lead-induced heart disease and ischaemic heart disease.

The study is entitled, “Low-level lead exposure and mortality in US adults: a population-based cohort study.” (The Lancet Public Health, VOLUME 3, ISSUE 4, PE177-E184, APRIL 01, 2018).

The alarming number of deaths from lead exposure as calculated by the study exceeds many estimates for the number of Americans killed each year by cancer. If this study is accurate, in other words, lead exposure is killing more Americans than cancer.

Lead is exhaustively documented to cause mental retardation, neurological disorders, skeletal diseases, reproductive toxicity (i.e. birth defects) and numerous other serious health problems.
