Editorial

Fancy having less than 40 g of lead as your total body burden? (See figure). Sorry, you were born in the wrong century! But if The LEAD Group achieves its aims then every child born next century will be far less contaminated with lead than the middle figure below. As will the ducks and dogs, flora and microbes, in short, all living things. Please subscribe or re-subscribe to LEAD Action News as your contribution to a lead risk-reduced ecologically sustainable future.

We also welcome your input and views, comments and corrections on articles. After some enquiries from callers and some verbally reported success with the homoeopathic remedy for lead poisoning, the taking of lead, I'd be very interested in more information. If you know of any cases, please send a written record including blood lead levels before and after homoeopathic treatment. The theme for our next issue is Lead and Women, Women and the Environment.

Body burden of lead

Body burden of lead in ancient people uncontaminated by industrial lead (left); typical American (middle); people with overt clinical lead poisoning (right). Each dot represents 40 g of lead.
