    Lead is most commonly used for protecting people from radioactive substances.

    For example, if you go to the dentist and they give you an X-ray of your teeth, they will usually give you a lead bib to protect you from the radiation produced by the X-ray. However, carbon (graphite usually) can also be used to shield, but whereas a plate of lead may work it would take a brick of graphite.
