In the United States, lead naturally exists in the environment at low concentrations, but the legacy of lead exposure from paint, leaded gasoline, and industrial emissions has increased the environmental burden. Adults are potentially exposed to lead in their homes and workplaces through the air, soil, and water. Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of mortality in the U.S., with lead playing a significant role in cardiovascular disorders. This study examines the effect lead has on young and middle-aged adults’ cardiovascular health, as understanding this can help clinicians and public health practitioners to educate and intervene to limit lead’s impact on cardiovascular disease risk.
