Lead is ubiquitous and versatile metal used by humankind for at least 9000 years. Lead
in the environment may derived either from natural or anthropogenic sources. Lead and
lead compounds have been used in a wide variety of products found in and around our
homes, including paint, ceramics, pipes and plumbing materials, solders, gasoline,
batteries, ammunition, and cosmetics. Lead and its compounds can enter in the
environment at any point during mining, smelting, processing, use, recycling or
disposal. We all are exposed to lead through atmosphere air, water, soil, food chain and
once lead enters in the body, it affects on the all systems and organs. The biological
effects of lead depend upon the level and duration of exposure. In developing countries
like India, it is not possible to reduce the use of lead, but it is possible to reduce the
exposure of lead by using protective devices.
In this conference, National and International distinguished faculties from various
fields like Toxicology, Environmental Science, Paediatrics, Gynaecology, Medicine,
Biochemistry, Educational Science, Industrial Sciences, Ayurvedic Medicine, Nursing
Sciences, Para Medical Sciences, Biomedical Engineers, Haematologist, Laboratory
Medicine will come on a single platform to enrich our knowledge and together hopefully
we should be able to make some recommendations for policy formulation towards
preventation of lead toxicity.
The organizing committee will try its best to make your stay in Karad comfortable and
pleasant. On behalf of the organizing committee we extend a warm welcome and hope
this mega event will be a memorable one.
