According to epidemiological studies in France, children are particularly exposed to the risk of pollution. Thus, more than 1,200 children whose blood lead levels exceeded 150 micrograms per liter have been identified in the centers of maternal and child health in the north-east Paris between 1 January 1987 and December 31, 1990. Among them, 300 severely ill children were treated in hospital in Paris during the same period. In July 1997, Médecins du Monde for his part believed to 70,000 the number of children in direct contact lead in Ile-de-France, mainly in old and degraded habitats. But the real endemic also affects other major French cities.
