    Study: Lead Exposure Increases Risk of Brain Cancer - Occupational Hazards
    Gas station attendants from the 1970s and early 1980s were estimated to have a high probability of exposure, but only medium intensity of exposure because their direct contact with leaded gasoline was not as great as the potential for contact. The jobs with the highest probability and intensity of lead exposure were painters and automobile mechanics. But firefighters, engineers, automobile assemblers, truck drivers, plumbers, welders and printers or typesetters were all among those individuals with some likelihood of lead exposure, according to the study.
