Dangers of lead to good health

There are many poisons in the environment.

There are thousands of man-made chemicals-some of these are in our homes, cars, cosmetics and even in our foods.

One of the most sinister and toxic of these is LEAD.
Yes, lead.

Lead has been wreaking havoc on human health even since the Romans used it for making water pipes.

Yet, lead is STILL around us.
You come in contact with lead more often than you think.
Here are some of the sources of lead.

  1. In car radiators
  2. Some cosmetics
  3. Ammunition/shooting ranges
  4. Some pottery
  5. In military industries
  6. In some spices form some countries-especially from India
  7. In some toys
  8. Welding
  9. Some houses with old paints
  10. Sea foods
  11. And would you believe in some supplements

This by no means exhausts the avenues through which lead can contaminate us, but you get the idea.
