  QUESTION: Lead exposure from Centre of Incineration Villa Allende (CIVA), Argentina, 16 Jul 2005, Cordoba Argentina

I am working on my Bachelor Thesis Proposal. It explores lead exposure impact on children's IQ from a neighbourhood of Villa Allende, a city of Córdoba where pollution were produced by a Centre called CIVA (Centre of Incineration from Villa Allende). Fortunately this Centre has recently been closed down.

When I started my research I realized that a lot has been written about this topic but it's been very difficult to get to those papers. And I am very interested in reading some of them. I wonder if you could send me anything at all.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Best regards
Marisol Fabiola Zamar

Dear Marisol Fabiola,

Many apologies for the long delay in responding to your email. We have completely run out of government funding and I am struggling to keep this service going.

We have so many articles in our library about lead that I would need to know exactly what you need before I would know what to send you. I'm not sure whether you wanted information posted or emailed - emailed is much cheaper for us. Alternatively, you can use our new searchable library database to find what you need.

I hope this helps and look forward to hearing back from you.

Yours Sincerely
Elizabeth O'Brien
