Charles McGee II and Amanda Lawrence from the Josiah Hill Clinic join us in the KBOO Studio to talk about the importance of being tested for lead levels in the blood, even for adults. Most of the emphasis around lead has centered around lead exposure to children because their growing metabolisms are more easily damaged. However, the effects of lead poisoning on adults is no less serious.
The Josiah Hill Clinic provides free blood-lead testing for children and certain adults. If you are an adult with a high risk of lead poisoning, you can be tested for free at the clinic. Call (503) 802-7389 for details.
Callers offered the following tid-bits:
Starting at about 45:00 minutes into the show, a listener from New York lists off a number of Green products that pass muster with her Homeopathic partner.
And, of course, we would not have a problem with lead at all if there was no PROFIT in using it. To create a society that is not driven to destruction by the insatiable lust for PROFIT, consider contacting the Freedom Socialist Party for possible solutions.
