Have you ever seen a goat chewing on a lead pipe? They will, you know.
I don’t eat lead. But, we are exposed to non-nutritive lead in our environments.
Mostly through old water pipes.
Lead poisoning is metal poisoning that is caused by lead in your body, and your brain is the most sensitive to lead.
Some of the health symptoms you can experience when exposed to lead include:
- abdominal pain
- memory problems
- tingling in your hands and feet
Lead harms the healthy production of your blood cells, and interferes with the absorption of calcium for your bones and teeth, muscle movements, your nerves, and healthy blood vessels. High lead levels can cause brain and kidney damage.
Look at it this way: you use a lead shield to protect from an X-ray, right?
Lead works the same way in your body – it provides a shield against other metals, and many times, it shields the absorption of essential nutrients that are very active, such as calcium.
If lead is circulating throughout your body, no bone nutrients can effectively penetrate your bones.
Do You Have Lead Poisoning?
If you are concerned that you might be exposed to lead, get a hair analysis and see for sure. Then, search for the source so that you can remove your exposure to it.
Lead-based paint and lead-contaminated dust in older buildings are the most common sources of lead poisoning, especially in children. Lead can contaminate the air, water and the soil. People are susceptible to lead poisoning if they:
- work with batteries;
- do home renovations;
- work in auto repair shops;
- live in an old house;
- eat pipes.
If You Have Lead Poisoning
If you think that you’ve been exposed to lead, get a hair analysis to know for sure, detox, detox detox and remove the source.
Basically, this is all that you can do, but it is the right thing!!
