The three major systems affected by lead are - the brain, gastrointestinal and hemopoesis (bone marrow and peripheral blood).
Bones is another body tissue that can be affected. Brain damage will be manifested with mental retardation of different degree. Gastrointestinal - constipation, if acutely poisoned, vomiting, pain. Blood - anemia.
