LEAD

Number 82 on the "periodic table" of elements

Tests the presence of ions of lead to a high degree of accuracy to detect contamination in the body and on a wide range of materials in your environment



Sources
Lead exposure are higher in North America than anywhere else in the world. In US alone, it is estimated that approximately 1.3 million tons of lead are used yearly in batteries, solder, pottery, pigments, gasoline, paint, and many other substances. Somewhere between 400,000 and 600,000 tons per year go into our atmosphere, into the earth earth, our food, and our body and tissues. So there is a lot of lead around. The following are some of the common contaminants:
  • Leaded gasoline - tetraethyl lead was previously added to all gasoline; it is now used only for older vehicles. After combustion, this lead goes directly into the atmosphere as air pollution and is inhaled by living breathing entities. It finds itw way into the earth and living vegetation, heavily traveled roadways which show higher concentrations of lead in the air, soil, and nearby vegetation;
  • Paint - although, legally, the amount of lead in paints must be reduced, some still contain lead. Many homes retain lead paints. Therefore lead exposure will continue in this manner for a few more decades;
  • Food - lead is found in many foods, especially those grown near industrial areas or cities or roadways. Grains, legumes, commercial and garden fruits, including most meat products. Liver and lunch meats are usually higher. Liverwurst and other sausages contain a higher level of lead than other foods. Vegetation grown near roadways, such as herbs, fruits, and vegetables, have higher concentrations than those grown in more secluded areas. Measurements of lead in trees growing along roadways show much concentrations than in the 1930s. Bonemeal, a source of calcium and magnesium, is usually made from cattle bones and may contain high amounts of lead. Pet foods may have high levels of contaimination;
  • Water - drinking water may be contaminated with lead through lead solder in pipes or lead plumbing in older homes. Drinking fountains, can leach into the water, especially soft water. A more acidic water will pull lead and other minerals, toxic and non-toxic, from the piping;
  • Pottery - "earthenware" has potential for high levels of lead exposure where the glazing is inefficient. Lead containers can also contaminate food stored in them. Fruit juices and acidic foods will pull out minerals including lead from such containers. Glazed coffee mugs should be avoided;
  • Cans - solder in tin cans, used to hold the seam together, contains lead. Some are nearly 100 percent lead. Although can manufacturers are changing, the progress is slow. Avoid lead-lined containers or cans whose seams have a shiny, metallic solder appearance. many imported cans contain lead. The leaded plugs in evaporated milk cans may contaminate the milk;
  • Cosmetics - many pigments and other substances used for makeup and other cosmetics contain lead. Historically, lead has used in face paints and other beauty creams;
  • Cigarettes - lead is occasionally a contaminant in cigarettes. Lead arsenate may be used as an insecticide in tobacco growing;
  • Pesticides - many pesticides and insecticides contain lead, mainly as a lead-arsenate base
