Lead poisoning caused when people inhaled, swallowed, or absorbed through the skin. Lead interferes with a variety of body processes and is toxic to many organs and tissues including the heart, bones, intestines, kidneys, and reproductive and nervous systems. It interferes with the development of the nervous system and is therefore particularly toxic to children, causing potentially permanent learning and behavior disorders. Generally lead is present in CRT screens, batteries, printed wiring boards of e-waste. Occupational exposure is a common cause of lead poisoning in adults. Improper processing of e-waste can cause release of lead into the environment through air, water, soil and food which is very dangerous to human health. A fetus developing in the womb of a woman who has elevated blood lead level is also susceptible to lead poisoning by intrauterine exposure, and is at greater risk of being born prematurely or with a low birth weight. Negative effect of Lead poisoning : Acute poisoning: Typical neurological signs are pain, muscle weakness, paraesthesia, and, rarely, symptoms associated with encephalitis., abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. Gastrointestinal problems, like constipation, diarrhea, poor appetite, or weight loss. Damage to kidneys can cause changes in urination such as decreased urine output. Hemolysis (the rupture of red blood cells) due to acute poisoning can cause anemia and hemoglobin in the urine. Chronic poisoning: It associated with three types of symptoms: gastrointestinal, neuromuscular, and neurological. Central nervous system and neuromuscular symptoms usually result from intense exposure. Gastrointestinal symptoms usually result from exposure over longer periods. Signs of chronic exposure include loss of short-term memory or concentration, depression, nausea, abdominal pain, loss of coordination, and numbness and tingling in the extremities. Fatigue, problems with sleep, headaches, stupor, slurred speech, and anemia are also found in chronic lead poisoning. Children with chronic poisoning may refuse to play or may have hyperkinetic or aggressive behavior disorders. Visual disturbance may present with gradually progressing blurred vision as a result of central scotoma, caused by toxic optic neuritis.
