  QUESTION: Lead poisoning treatment for lead acid battery workers, 07 Aug 2006,Tamil Nadu India

I am working in lead acid battery industry, so that I need lead poisoning treatment details for our colleagues and myself also.
ANSWER: 06 Aug 2006

Dear Velu,
you need to find a good doctor to manage the treatment of lead poisoning. You need to know that Ayurvedic medicines are sometimes contaminated by lead. The Ayurvedic medicines are sold by weight and lead is a cheap way to increase the weight and this makes taking Ayurvedic medicines too risky, especially if you already have lead poisoning. I hope that you can find a good doctor to treat you and your co-workers but if not, perhaps the good people at the National Referral Centre for Lead Poisoning in India (NRCLPI) can help you find one - phone 802065058 - the centre is in Bangalore. Web:  A vital part of dealing with lead poisoning is to prevent further lead poisoning. I will forward you our Info Pack on preventing lead poisoning at work and I will also email you an invitation to join our LeadWorkers egroup so that you can discuss with other lead workers around the world the ongoing issues that you will most likely encounter in the process of both lead poisoning treatment and making your workplace lead-safe.
I wish you the best. Please send any further questions to the LeadWorkers egroup after you join up.
Kind Regards
Yours Sincerely
Elizabeth O'Brien
