Lead toxicity is a hot topic these days, especially when it was a common component in household paint for many years. In Taiwan, there was concern that babies were being exposed to toxic levels of lead through breast milk.

High schoolers read an article about the study and then research the sources of lead exposure in the USA. A four-step assignment accompanies the article.
