Most of La Oroyaís children suffer elevated lead levels, according to the Peruvian government. The question of responsibility for lead pollution in La Oroya is at the center of high-stakes clash between Peru and U.S. billionaire Ira Rennert, who owned Doe Run Peru for more than a decade through Renco Group Inc., a metals, mining and industrial conglomerate based in New York that has said it is not responsible for the childrenís ills.
