Tested Positive for Heavy Metals

Hi All,

Thanks for the various responses (Lisa and Mark for the URLs).

The house is less than 15 yrs old, don’t eat lots of fish, no
(paint) chips.

My shop is in the basement (tested clean.) I have helped inventory
and assess a number of mineral collections (I won’t do more of that).
The other 2 working locations are clean. One of the tests indicated
that the lead is not a current exposure (within the last 30 days) so
its probably not from my weekly activities.

They’re starting me on chelation now. It is looking more like the
exposure was probably not related to my current metal/lapidary
activities, thank goodness.
