I passed my heavy metal poisons test, I have no heavymetals in my body. I have been around a lot of heavy metals when I was able to work. I am disabled and have some of the symptoms of HM poisoning. I finally got a Dr. to test me and low and behold, I passed with more than flying colors. I have been exposed to [b]VERY HIGH[/b] amounts of lead, cadmium, mercury, and the list goes on. I was sure I was poisoned, but the results on mercury were, [b]"Under the normal limits."]/b] This makes me wonder about all the, [b]"EPA scares"[b/] on these deemed health threats. They make it sound like one quick exposure will kill you. I had heavy daily exposures for a period of a good solid 10 years. When I told this to the Dr, he laughed and said the test doesn't even show a scratch on my body. What's going on here, is the EPA really lying to us for some reason? All's I can say is, shoot normal, be happy, and don't worry about lead poisoning unless it's being administered by the ole' fire stick... [BD] [BD] [BD]

The Government would not lie to its citizens!

I don't know about you, but I'd always rather err on the side of caution when it comes to introducing toxins into my body. So if the EPA/OSHA is a little over zealous in their warnings I think I can live with it. Another thing is, the lower the standards are set by the EPA/OSHA the easier it is for them to fine (tax) nonconforming businesses/corporations for violations.

What kind of music do you listen to? Any heavy metal in your ears? That can cause you harm too. [;)]
