United Nations Environment Programme, World Health Organization

Le plomb est un métal toxique dont l’usage largement répandu entraîne une contamination de l’environnement et d’importants problèmes de santé publique dans de nombreuses régions du monde. Le plomb peut avoir des effets toxiques graves et permanents sur la santé des enfants. Bien que ceux‐ci en soient les principales victimes, le plomb nuit également à la santé des adultes, notamment celle des travailleurs exposés. Il n’existe aucun niveau d’exposition au plomb qui puisse être considéré comme « sans risque ».
