They found that lead exposure had a powerful and significant effect on children

Researchers at Princeton University and Brown University uncovered a link between exposure to lead in peoples’ younger years and criminal behaviour. 

The material was a key component in paint during the 1960s and 1970s, before it was banned from house paint in 1976. 

Leaded gasoline was also phased out between 1979 and 1986.
