AMA Supports Lead Action

Call for medics to enlist in the green fray

The following article by Gareth Soreham in Canberra appeared in the Newcastle Morning Herald on page 2 on June 6th, 1995.

The association's new head, Dr David Weedon said yesterday that even those who had been only slightly exposed to lead pollution were experiencing significant health difficulties.

Dr Weedon called on doctors to take a greater role in the green debate, because global environmental deterioration meant sicker patients.
