Lead is unique in that man-made sources contribute almost solely to exposure in the post-industrial era.The adverse health effects caused by low-level exposure to Pb have been reviewed. Such health effects include neurological impairment and deficits in the functioning of the central nervous system. Blood lead level is an important index which can measure how seriously children have been exposed to lead. By consulting the papers on the studies of children’s blood lead levels, the sources and influencing factors of blood lead levels of children in China were reviewed in the present paper, meanwhile, some suggestions were provided to decrease the lead contact probability and improve children’s health.
