  QUESTION: Is there a connection between lead poisoning and Mb. Paget, 09 Jun 2005,  Slovenia

We are Regional Health Institute in Slovenia. Generations of people from the upper Meza Valley are living in the environment with a burden of lead and other heavy metals. Last study, which was done in the year 2001 showed, that the lead burden from all sources is still high.

We noticed that in our region we have very high prevalence of Mb. Paget comparable with our state. Do you know anything about connection with high burden of lead and Mb. Paget?

Thank you for your reply!

Best wishes!
For the Regional Institute of Public Health,
Neda Mandl,

ANSWER: 09 Jun 2005

Dear Neda,

Please forgive my lack of medical knowledge but I cannot work out from your email which meaning of the following you are referring to:

  1. A disease, occurring chiefly in old age, in which the bones become enlarged and weakened, often resulting in fracture or deformation.
  2. A form of breast cancer affecting the areola and nipple.
  3. A skin cancer arising from apocrine sweat glands.

Yours Sincerely
Elizabeth O'Brien
