Blood Lead Challenge
Take the blood lead discovery and reporting challenge.
Research demonstrates the connection between the level of lead in our blood and increased risk of: dementia, osteoporosis, brain ageing, early death and learning difficulties in children.
Do you have regular blood tests? Have you had your blood lead levels checked in the past?
It costs nothing and your blood sample can be simultaneously tested for other heavy metals. All you need is a referral from your GP to your local pathology lab. If you already have regular blood tests, ask your doctor to add lead levels to the tests they usually request.
High blood lead levels, once detected, are amenable to simple treatments.
We want YOU to know your blood lead level, and we want you to tell US.
Be part of our survey and receive results-based personalised advice, and peace of mind in knowing what your lead level is.
Help us build a strong data set.
Lead-safety Message: "If you must remain living where lead dust falls from the sky all day, regular wet-cleaning is a vital part of keeping a child lead-safe".
