SHANGHAI, Jan. 7 (SMM) -- Recently, 55 of 110 children in Hekou village, Dafeng city in Jiangsu province were tested positive for high lead levels in their blood. The related departments of Dafeng city said to send those children diagnosed with high lead levels to the hospital for medical treatment, and required the culprit of lead poisoning to be relocated, and made further investigations on responsibility.
This is the second poisoning case reported by media since late December 2009 because of the neighboring lead-acid battery plants. SMM believes that, on one hand, it warns both lead smelters and lead-battery producers to improve their environment protection equipments. On the other hand, the exposure of the case is more easily interpreted as the problem of people's livelihood, and will not affect supply and demand in the industry, with little impact on lead prices as a result.
