Let us look at "IQ scores.



Now... Genetics, what do you usually have in inner cities and L.A.

"Lead" is a cover for something else, we can also toss in the vaccination programs they push in those places, which low IQ, and Fluoride. Which they put in the water, not for your health, but because they would have to Pay TO DISPOSE OF IT AS TOXIC WASTE. *that is another topic I'll gladly dive into into its own thread. I have a 12 Chapter book commissioned by the EPA which outlines the hazards.


Lead is smoke and mirrors for something else.

Lead definitely has long term effects.

LBP or other lead are not the only factors affecting weither or not kids have elevated levels. Such things as balanced diets, family income levels, family education levels, single vs dual parents, and the like all are factors. simple things like getting kids to wash their hands frequently and cleaning walls and floors with simple spic and span cleaners goes a real long way towards protecting kids.

And yes back in the early 90's I was on the Army's team for abating lead in our quarters

Since all the water used in the major coastal California cities was first stolen from the low population area of the Sierras, I must admit that this story makes me smile.

Well, oldest, who's now 15, was 9 months when he was diagnosed with a blood lead level of 26. We talked about chelation. His only symptom was severe constipation - poor kid didn't poop without bleeding until he was 3. Second son, well, he's got ADHD. He could come by it honestly, as his dad and both grandfathers have it, or it could be exacerbated by the lead, we don't know. He was an 18 our of 40. DD1 was a 14, and dd2 was an 11. Because of where we lived, our doc regularly tested at age 1 for lead poisoning. With ds2, we had him and the rest tested at 6 months so we could be on top of it. We, as parents, made the decision to nutritionally support all of them via extra calcium and iron. These bind to the same receptors in the brain that lead binds to. If you can get them to bind to calcium and iron, the lead can eliminated.

Our problem was not simple. We went thru a whole lead in the household elimination via the state - they came in and got rid of it. We were, at that point, living in the most lead poisoned town in the state. Unfortunately, for us, it was due to our house being about 15 feet back from a busy state route that was the local road equivalent of the highway. Because of this, and the fact that unleaded gas is simply lead reduced gas, not truly unleaded, what was happening was that cars would drive by, the lead would aeresolize, then re-deposit in our house. It was truly impossible to eliminate.

Sorry, IQ tests are a western product and depend largely on a western edumacation. The type of tests given do not translate well out of a first world perspective.

Somehow this will get solved by taking money away from those who earn and given to those who don't earn.

Folks in Flint Michigan demanded free water during the water problem. When the state fixed the problem, they threw a fit when they were asked to pay again.
