Default how bad is this?

So I decided to test some of the paint in my apartment with two test kits and I was quite shocked at the results...


Practically all of the paint in the apartment that was there before I came is lead paint. The landlord or whoever owned the house before him even decided to use the extra lead paint to paint on the inside of the kitchen cabinets...

As you probably well know, such lead contamination is very detrimental for children.

If you are concerned about yourself, and apparently you are, I suggest an air purifier with a HEPA or Filtrete filter to trap lead particles.

You may want to consider consuming Modified Citrus Pectin which is reputed to detox a person of heavy metals. Also, garlic is recommended for this purpose. Brocolli has been recommended to detox children of lead poisoning.

I hope I have been helpful.

L.B.

I bet those are super expensive. Do regular department stores carry them? And yeah I'm concerned about my health, who wouldn't be? LOL

I don't really believe in any of that New Age crap. I'll just stick with conventional medicine. Chelation therapy has been shown to work and there is very little maybe about it. The only problem is, it's not resolutely used to treat low level lead poisoning...

Here's one link
http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/lead-poisoning/FL00068/DSECTION=symptoms
but I don't know how soon you can expect the onset of symptoms. There's probably some period of time, X, measured in weeks, months or years, that if you don't have symptoms you're not being poisoned.

Lead paint was used for hundreds of years and no one lived past fifteen?
Three people are in danger with lead paint. The guy that put it up, the guy that took it down and the kids that eat wood work.
If this worries you, move.

Yeah, I thought these kinds of experiments stopped in 1945 when 'Uncle Adolf' went out of business.
I guess not.

Nope: the US was doing it in the 70s

Well, we might have to wait until we evolve into a higher form of life. Since 'Eve' lived 500K years ago we may be overdue.

But. . .wait . . .do you think these higher life forms are already living among us and since they are biologically superior they know better than to make their presence known?

Yo?! Superior being dudes and dudettes out there?! Give us hope, would you?
