PMID:  384969     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The potential for lead to cause neoplasm in animals and man is reviewed. A multitude of studies indicate that principally renal tumours may be produced by various forms of inorganic lead in small rodents. No human study either of an epidemiological form or of a case report in industrial, agricultural or community medicine has proven that lead may cause cancer in man.
