AbstractAccording to Health Canada, exposure to lead can be harmful to human health, even in small amounts. Everyone is exposed to trace amounts of it in air, soil, household dust and drinking water. Although drinking water is not the most significant source of exposure in Canada, lead can leach into the water system from the corrosion of pipes and fittings, especially if those fittings touch stagnant water.
