This pilot study investigated adolescents with well-documented childhood lead burdens to determine the relationship between lead and unintentional injury. Adolescents completed a self-administered injury questionnaire. Results demonstrated that elevated childhood blood lead concentrations were significantly related to injury variables. Further study is necessary to understand adolescent health and safety implications.
