Elwood, Peter Creighton, Yarnell, John W. G., Oldham, Peter D., Catford, John C., Nutbeam, Don, Davey-Smith, George and Toothill, Colin 1988. Blood pressure and blood lead in surveys in Wales. American Journal of Epidemiology 127 (5) , pp. 942-945.

The association between blood pressure and blood lead level was examined in two population surveys in Wales. In a survey of 1,721 male and female subjects throughout the principality, there was evidence of a marked relation of blood pressure with age, but when this was removed no residual association with blood lead remained. In a survey of 1,164 older men in Caerphilly, there was no evidence of an association between blood lead and either resting blood pressure or the rise in blood pressure during a cold pressor test.
