Toddler Serum Levels

Toddler Serum Levels

Evidence exists on the negative effects of high
concentrations of serum lead on children’s health
and its negative behavioral, social, and intellectual
consequences. This issue has aroused serious
health related concerns throughout the globe. The
need for control, supervision, and management to
decrease the risks of lead exposure is deeply
felt[22].
In our study, more boys suffered from lead
poisoning in the case group (40.9%) compared
with the control group (9.3%). More girls in the
case group (34.8%) suffered from lead poisoning
compared with the control group (8.3%). In a
study by Verbel and coworkers on 189 5-9 year-
old children of 10 different schools in Columbia,
7.4% of the children had serum lead levels of
10µg/dL. Consistent with our study, they found
no significant difference in serum lead levels with
respect to sex[13]. However, a review article that
assessed the serum lead levels of Chinese children
from 1994-2004 showed inconsistent results. The
researchers found that the serum lead level of the
boys (96.4 µg/l) was significantly higher (89.4
µg/l) than that of the girls[23].
We found that in the case group, the odds ratios
of those suffering from lead poisoning in the boys
and girls were 6.785 and 5.867, respectively,
compared with the control group. We also found
that boys wereat a higher risk of lead poisoning
which shows that boys are possibly more exposed
to lead.
In the case group, children living in both old and
new houses had significantly higher serum lead
levels compared with the control group.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
