QUESTION: Lead information for 65 year old plumber. 12 Jan 2007 ACT, Australia

My husband is a 65 year old plumber. A recent visit to a psychologist suggested that many of his symptoms fit with possible lead poisoning so I am anxious to locate as much information about lead poisoning in adults as I can find. Unfortunately my computer is too old so many of the fact sheets don't load. I am happy to pay for copies & mail.


  1. Am I able to request snail mail copies of your fact sheets? I am particularly interested in nos 1, 5, 24, 28, 29, 33, 34

  2. Does your library hold copies of the references attached to the fact sheet titled Health Impacts of Lead Poisoning
