Unformatted text preview: 1. In Morton eta]. (1982)1 fathers who worked in a battery manufacturing plant and, consequently, were
exposed to lead, were classiﬁed as having good, moderately good, or poor hygienic practices as follows: Good Hygiene: Usually showered and shampooed, and changed his clothes and shoes before leaving work
(this was recommended by the company). Mgderatglx Qood Hygiene: Changed clothes before leaving work, but did not shower. Poor Hygiene: Did not practice any of the above lead containment procedures. Blood lead levels were taken of children aged 1283 months with at least one year of potential exposure to
the lead from their fathers and the results were tabulated: Hygiene Blood Lead Sample Sample Sample Standard
