 Hosted by Lisa Loving

Charles McGee II and Amanda Lawrence from the Josiah Hill Clinic join us in the KBOO Studio to talk about the importance of being tested for lead levels in the blood, even for adults.  Most of the emphasis around lead has centered around lead exposure to children because their growing metabolisms are more easily damaged.  However, the effects of lead poisoning on adults is no less serious.
