Lead poisoning is the condition due to toxic levels of lead (a heavy metal that is used to make bullets, fishing sinkers, some white paints, and some gasoline additives) in the body. The clinical symptoms and signs are non-specific (headache, abdominal pain, learning disorders, and some forms of neuropathy). Diagnosis is made by finding high levels of lead in blood.
