Causes and Indicators • The main causes of lead pollution are from oil, gasoline, and many lost fishing weights • Any spilled oil or gasoline releases lead which is part of its chemical structure • Many fishing weights are lost due to snags on the bottom or fish breaking the line from being to big or the fisherman having the drag too tight
Human Effects • Lead effects all of the human organs and causes a great amount of damage such as hearing loss and tooth decay • The kidneys are damaged at high levels and gout builds up • In the heart it causes high blood pressure, and increases your chances of heart disease • Most of the problems though are related to the nervous system and the brain
Environmental Effects • Lead affects all living things • Any lead in our oceans is absorbed by the wildlife and when we eat that wildlife we then absorb it • Lead gets into the ocean mostly from all the boats
