Anybody else's kid(s) have or had lead poisoning? And if so, how did you get rid of their lead?

Take them to the hospital. Lead poisoning can cause brain damage and all sorts of other problems.

The hospital won't do anything. I've been dealing with this for awhile now. All they do is say hand washing & diet but there has to be a way to get rid of it totally! I'm at a loss at the moment. Idk what else to do right now for my girls!

I know if they drink a big amount of juice it helps prevent it so maybe it would help flush it. All my kids test were extremely low and I asked if the # was good, doc said they was great #s and he asked if they drank juice and he told me that's why they was low cause they drank a lot of juice. Have your yard tested also. If you buy any toys out of the quarter machines the tv said those toys have a lot of lead in them.

the best natural chelators include:
Vitamin C (fruits, superfruit berries, and fresh veggies
IP6 (phytic acid acid found in fiber rich nuts, seesd and grains – can also be supplemented)
Garlic & cilantro
PectaSol Chelation (Supplement made of Citrus Pectin, sea vegetables and other ingredients specifically for binding to and pulling out heavy metals)
NAC (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine is a more stable form of the amino acid L-Cysteine that is a powerful anti-toxin that reduces free radical damage and helps protect the body against environmental toxins)– taken as a supplement
ALA – alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant naturally made by the body. Ideally it is best to be supplemented but is also found in red meat and yeast (brewers and nutritional)
Zeolites – Volcanic mineral that acts as an amazing chelating agent pulling out environmental toxins and pollutants in the body.

It takes a ton of lead to get lead poisoning so I wouldn't freak out too bad. You could seriously eat a big cube and you still wouldn't get lead poisoning. The worst part would be trying to pass it through. When lead is smelted is when it's at it's worst.

Well my daughter had lead of 58. And my toddler currently has lead of 21, anything over 5 is now considered "lead poisoning" so it is scary. Especially when you read the side effects of lead.

Call the EPA or the health dept., the EPA is digging up my mother-in-law's yard this week but the health dept got ahold of Doe Run for mine a few years ago.

I called the health department, but they blew me off and told me to contact Doe Run Mining. I can not find a good contact number for them. The EPA has NEVER returned my call and I have left a lot of messages. Any ideas?

I'm thinking I heard Madison county health dept took over yards. Maybe look up their number. Idk other than that. But I know they won't help unless you have a kid or kids with elevated lead.:/ sucks! You almost have to jump thru hoops to keep them healthy.
