Tests the presence of ions of lead to a high degree of accuracy to
detect contamination in the body and on a wide range of materials in your environment
Lead in the body interferes with many functions of the body. Lead accumulation interferes with absorption of important body minerals, such
as zinc, calcium, and manganese.
Early signs of lead toxicity are fairly vague, such as headache, fatigue, muscle pains, anorexia, constipation, vomiting, pallor, anemia.
They can be followed by agitation, irritability, restlessness, memory loss, poor coordination and vertigo, and depression.
Acute lead toxicity symptoms include abdominal pain similar to colic, nausea and vomiting, anemia, muscle weakness, and encephalopathy. Lead
encephalopathy is a brain syndrome that can arise also from advanced chronic toxicity. It is characterized by poor balance, confusion, vertigo,
hallucinations, and speech and hearing problems.
Even low levels of lead intoxication cab affect brain functions and activity though subtly, like influencing intelligence, attention span, language,
and memory. Insomnia and nightmares are often experienced. Hyperactivity and even retardation and senility may result. Moderate levels of lead may
reduce immune and kidney function and increase risk of infections, and may be another factor in increasing blood pressure. There is some suggestion
that lead intoxication correlates with cancer rates. Further research is needed in this area. Death can occur with chronic lead contamination.
In children, lead is a special cause for concern. Hyperactivity and learning disorders have been correlated with lead intoxication; children with
these problems should be checked. Several studies have shown a relationship between lead levels and learning defects. Such behaviour includes
daydreaming, being easily frustrated or distracted, a decreased ability to follow instruction and a a poor learning focus. General excitability
and hyperactivity are the other symptoms. Recently a correlation between sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and increased lead levels have been
observed. However, further research is required to confirm that lead intoxication as a cause of SIDS.
The average daily absorption of lead is 20-40 mcg. and which can be eliminated from the body easily. The acceptable range of lead in the body
is between 20-40 ppm. Concentrations less than 20 ppm and 10 ppm for children may be acceptable but lead is a toxic metal and ideally it should be
0 for both organic and inorganic lead.
