  QUESTION: Our family was poisoned in 1969 by a lead-acid battery manufacturer, 15 May 2003, Florida USA

Am very interested in symptoms Kate's daughter is experiencing due to lead exposure. [Reference: "David and Goliath Battle Taking Shape in the Hunter"]. We send our best wishes for minimal health disruption. Our family was poisoned in 1969 by a lead-acid battery manufacturer. We only learned of it in 2000 after our family suffered for 31 years with no answers or medical opinion as to where the illnesses were coming from. If you would like more information, please feel free to contact me.


ANSWER: 15 May 2003

Dear Brenda,

It would be very interesting to hear of your family's experience with lead poisoning and we would be happy to web-publish it for the benefit of others, if you could write something up.
Unfortunately you did not include your email address when you wrote to us. It will be much easier for us to communicate by email.

I am sending by snail-mail the enclosed articles because they comprise the most recent and most amazing research in recent years on the effects of lead:

"Intellectual Impairment in Children with Blood Lead Concentrations below 10 g per Deciliter" by Canfield, Richard L; Henderson, CR; Cory-Slechta, DA; Cox, C; Jusko, Todd A; Lanphear, Bruce P, [SUBSCRIBERS AND PURCHASERS ONLY]; and "Blood Lead Levels And Mortality" by Lustberg, M; Silbergeld, E, Cost is US$9 

I look forward to hearing from you and I thank you for your kind words to Kate which I have passed on to Kate but she was out so I left it on her answering machine.

Good luck!
Elizabeth O'Brien
