A mythology has long reigned among many practitioners that knowledge about an occupational and environmental illness like lead poisoning, once established in one nation, authomatically spreads elsewhere. More recently, an alternative proposition has consolidated among social scientists, that knowledge such as that about lead poisoning has to always be rediscovered in a particular nation for it to spread. By looking at some early evidence from an ongoing comparative study of the development both of hazards and of knowledge about lead poisoning in the United States versus Mexico, Sellers will seek a middle ground between these two approaches to knowledge dissemination in occupational and environmental health.
