HAEMATOLOGICAL ALTERATIONS DUE TO ENVIRONMENTAL LEAD EXPOSURE IN AN URBAN POPULATIONK. GOSWAMP, A. BANDY0PADMAY AND 0. PRASAD
Haematological aspects among a small population exposed to environmental lead in Kolkata, India were studied. Haemoglobin content, RBC and WBC counts and PCV were markedly reduced.
