Lead can cause damage to the healthy state of the body including depleting the body’s immune system. Lead poisoning is often implicated in acute and/or chronic conditions.

Comparisons with bone analysis of very old skeletons have shown that the lead levels in our bodies today are 500 – 1,000 times higher. Toxic heavy metals can cause the following health problems:

  • Exposure to lead can lead to a wide range of biological defects in human depending on duration and level of exposure.
  • The developing fetus and infants are far more sensitive than adults.
  • High exposure can cause problems in the synthesis of haemoglobins, damage to the kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, joints, reproductive system and the nervous system.
  • Studies have suggested that exposure to lead can negatively affect IQ.
