• Bruce Lanphear, MD, MPH, is a health sciences professor at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and a senior scientist at the Child & Family Research Institute at BC Children's Hospital.Dr. Bruce Lanphear has spent decades researching low-level lead exposure and his work is often cited by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.His primary goal is to help quantify and ultimately prevent disease and disability due to exposures to environmental contaminants and pollutants.He is leading an effort to build an online Atlas of Environmental Health and produce videos to enhance public understanding of how environmental influences impact human health.His research has focused on fetal and early childhood exposure to lead and other environmental neurotoxins.His research has been published in numerous reputable medical journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine.

Previous estimates assumed that low level exposure did not increase the risk of premature death. The study's lead author Professor Bruce Lanphear said there is an increased risk of death at levels between 1 and 5 micrograms per decilitre. "Still, lead represents a leading cause of disease and death, and it is important to continue our efforts to reduce environmental lead exposure," Professor Lanphear said. Professor Taylor said. He said it was not surprising that half of the children living in Mount Isa have blood lead levels above the safe level of five micrograms per decilitre.
