Notwithstanding education, publicity, and restrictive measures lead poisoning has become the chief industrial hazard. Since compounds of lead frequently contaminate drinking water, beverages, cosmetics and a variety of other substances used by mankind, it has become equally as important a factor in causing distress and sickness among the non-industrial population. New sources of lead poisoning are constantly being uncovered so that it behooves the Medical Profession to be forever on the watch for this important disease and its manifestations. Within the past year another source of lead poisoning, while by no means new, should be newly emphasized in this country.
