Metals and Occupational Diseases
There are 73 Pb compounds in Haz-Map. Lead compounds can cause neuropathy in workers. If you look at neuropathy, you will see that this disease is linked to "Lead" rather than to all 73 Pb compounds. This was done to improve the readability of the disease page. Let's look at an example of one of the lead compounds. Lead (II) carbonate, although it has the same adverse effects as lead, is not directly linked to neuropathy, but only to the disease "Lead, subacute toxic effect." In the comments section for Lead (II) carbonate, it says, "See 'Lead' and linked occupational diseases." So, all 73 Pb compounds are indirectly linked to all the diseases listed under Lead.
