IUPUI scientists find risk of lead exposure comes from both ends of firearms
INDIANAPOLIS -- Risks from firearms actually come from both ends of the barrel, according to an IUPUI study. Individuals at firing ranges are exposed to very high amounts of lead from shooting firearms, and exposure is as high at outdoor firing ranges as it is at indoor ranges.
These findings are based on a comprehensive literature review led by Gabriel Filippelli, professor of earth sciences in the School of Science at IUPUI, and his team.
