Abstract | Full Text

Lead is a heavy metal that, when handled properly, is beneficial to humans. However, disrespect to safety standards and improper storage cause damage to the handler and the environment. One of the most common issuesis related to human food health involving beef and milk cattle. The objective of this study was to survey the cases between 2002 and 2015 of contamination and poisoning of cattle in the Brazilian regions. Research has shown that the southeastern and southern regions hold the highest number of cases and the main form of intoxication in cattle is the mineral supplementation in their diet.
