In this investigation, a comparison study of blood lead levels (BLL) were performed for occupational workers of Babil -1 Acid Battery Factory in Baghdad when the plant was fully operational, in 1987, and after eight years 2003 closer. A substantial amount of lead, 22%, was excreted as compared to that of 1987 results. Such finding has been confirmed as normal values by the widely used indicator of oxidative stress, malonaldehyde were reduced in a similar fashion. The poor correlation between BLL and malonaldehyde level in plasma has R2 value of 0.0013. Forty two volunteers were randomly selected, twelve served as control.
