Flint, Michigan recently declared a "State of Emergency" in the wake of lead contaminated drinking water. As a result, we are once again faced with the age-old discussion regarding the health implications of lead accumulation. We know that protecting all people from lead exposure is extremely important to lifelong good health. Children, however, are particularly vulnerable to the harmful effects of lead because they absorb lead much more readily than adults. The current controversy over treatment revolves around three questions:
Who should be considered at higher risk for harm and offered treatment?
What treatments should be offered to individuals with elevated lead levels?
At what blood lead level burden is it appropriate to start therapy?
Unfortunately, this tragedy goes far beyond Flint, Michigan. People worldwide continue to be exposed to potentially harmful levels of many toxic metals that can profoundly affect their health. They face potentially enduring, serious and complicated health issues.Perhaps the major question, especially in children, is the level of lead in the blood to cause concern.READ MORE
