LEAD Action News Vol 2 no 2 Autumn 1994
Don't Boil the Fish!
Theresa Gordon of NO LEAD asks why the Health Department does not warn residents against boiling the whole fish when it is known that, especially Asian families cook fish caught locally, in this way. The warnings would need to be accessible to non-English speaking background residents. Theresa points out that lead accumulates in the bones as well as in the soft organs of fish. No community group has been funded to carry out community education yet the industry can afford regular community reports.
