Environment pollution by lead is worldwide public problem, exemplified by an elevated blood levels among people living in the polluted areas. Lead poisoning has adverse health. It is required to study the lead level in the developing city like Bhopal, which is situated in the heart of the country and capital of Madhya Pradesh.
