Lead: Destroyer of Young Lives

Lead...

--inhibits acetylcholine production
--lowers IQ in children
--is associated with neuro degenerative diseases
--increases free-radical production
--stimulates exitotoxicity
--inhibits proper memory functions
--is associated with violent behavior
--increases anxiety

As always, lead poses the greatest dangers to the unborn and the small child, but the danger continues to be significant throughout life...lead also alters brain function by interfering with cellular calcium, which plays a very critical role in brain cell function. In fact, lead has a greater attraction for calcium's cellular receptors than calcium itself does.

While most modern houses have PVC [plastic pipes] pipes, even modern faucets have lead-containing joints that can be a significant source of lead in drinking water. Remember, fluoridated water leaches even more lead from the pipes and faucets, greatly increasing your risk of lead poisoning from this source.
