Apologies for the delay in responding but we have lost our federal government funding so no longer get even the half wages we were getting.
You will find a good description of the problems of organic lead at www.inchem.org/documents/pims/chemical/organlea.htm and specifically, there is a useful section on bioavailability
There is some good information comparing organic and inorganic lead at www.agius.com/hew/resource/lead.htm
I understand from Anna that your sister Tracy is very ill at the moment but I find it very difficult to understand how Tracy might have been severely lead poisoned by organic lead from petrol fumes, as she has apparently been told by one practitioner. This kind of poisoning usually only happens to lead workers in particular industries or to petrol sniffers. Can you throw any light on the situation? Do you know which practitioner diagnosed severe organic lead poisoning and what the method of analysis was?
