Have You Been a Victim of Lead Poisoning?
Lead poisoning is a medical condition that results from abnormally high levels of lead in a person's blood stream. The heavy metal interferes with a variety of body processes and it is toxic to various organs and tissues of the body including the heart, intestines, kidneys and others. Acquiring this high level of lead in the blood stream is caused by extensive exposure to this metal in the air or through the skin among other ways. Exposure to high amounts of lead can result from many different scenarios including contact with air, household dust, soil, water and other ways.
Occupational exposure to lead can result from working in a factory or warehouse that deals with lead-containing products. Some of these products include certain surgical equipment, plumbing materials, batteries and many others. Adults who work around lead and are exposed to lead can bring lead dust home on their clothes and unknowingly expose their children to lead poisoning.
