QUESTION: Nutrients to prevent lead poisoning, 02 May 2006, Western Australia
I have been reading about Chelation and as health topics interest me I would like to find where I can purchase supplements that will be of benefit in taking toxins out of my system. I am 57 and in quite good health but I am developing osteoarthritis and am looking for ways to help myself, I fast one day a week and do not eat meat, I am contemplating starting eating a small amount of meat as through reading about chelation I have discovered that Lipoic acid mainly comes from beef and organ foods.
I would appreciate any advice you could give me on this subject.

I'm sorry for the late reply. I put 2 links below regarding the recommended nutrients to reduce lead poisoning. Certainly nutrients (e.g calcium) can affect the absorption of lead.
www.nal.usda.gov/wicworks/Sharing_Center/KYlead.pdf Lead Prevention Diet - How Does Lead Harm the Body? Adapted from a Northern Kentucky District pamphlet, “Lead Poisoning Diet”. COMMONWEALTH OF KENTUCKY, DEPARTMENT FOR PUBLIC HEALTH
www.epa.gov/lead/pubs/nutrition.pdf Fight Lead Poisoning with a Healthy Diet: Lead Poisoning Prevention Tips for Famlies: November 2001. "US EPA, OCSPP, Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics"
I hope the information would help.
