Workers exposed to lead may have memory problems

(NBC)--Workers who are exposed to lead over time may have problems with memory and other brain functions as they age.

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh followed workers who were employed at lead battery plants 25 years ago. Back then, their blood lead-levels measured high.

Current cognitive tests on the workers showed mild deficits in memory, learning and spatial ability.
