“National Treatment Centers for Environmental Disease Tackles Flint Michigan’s Lead Exposure problems. Medical Treatment and medical testing for Lead Exposure.”
The nation’s leading authority for environmental impacts to human health has taken the lead in the medical treatment for Flint Michigan’s massive lead poisoning crisis.

“The phone is ringing off the hook,” said Kyle White, the head of patient services at the National Treatment Centers for Environmental Disease, and people are scared to death! There are so few medical facilities that do what we do with lead and other heavy metals poisonings we’re being flooded with patients.

White went on to say, that our medical facility does human lead testing much differently than what is currently conducted in Flint, our treatment process is also far different from Chelation. Chelation does not work very well and many times it is a total failure due to the fact the doctors preforming the Chelation do not preform the procedures enough to become proficient in their technique. Many times they actually make the condition worse, even to the point of it being irreversible.

Lead toxicity is far from a joke, something to be scoffed at, or even put onto the backburner. Through the 1950s and 1960s, the use of exterior lead-based paint declined significantly, and ended by the early 1970s. In 1971, the federal Lead Poisoning Prevention Act was passed. In 1978, the federal government banned consumer uses of lead paint. Lead was also banned from not only from paint, but gasoline, water pipes, shotgun shell buckshot, clothing dye, solder, all children’s products and a plethora of other industrial applications. It does not matter if a person breathes-in, eats, drinks, or absorbs lead particles through their skin, the health effects are the same. Lead poisoning can even happen if a person is exposed to very high levels of lead over a short period of time. When this happens, a person may feel:

• Abdominal pain

• Constipated

• Tired

• Headachy

• Irritable

• Loss of appetite

• Memory loss

• Pain or tingling in the hands and/or feet

• Weak

Because these symptoms may occur slowly or may be caused by other things, lead poisoning can be easily overlooked. Exposure to high levels of lead may cause anemia, weakness, and kidney and brain damage. Very high lead exposure can cause death.

Lead can cross the placental barrier, which means pregnant women who are exposed to lead also expose their unborn child. Lead can damage a developing baby’s nervous system. Even low-level lead exposures in developing babies have been found to affect behavior and intelligence. Lead exposure can cause miscarriage, stillbirths, and infertility (in both men and women).

Health effects from prolonged exposure to lead, a person who is exposed to lead over time may feel:

• Abdominal pain

• Constipated

• Depressed

• Distracted

• Forgetful

• Irritable

• Nauseous/Sick

People with prolonged exposure to lead may also be at risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney disease, and reduced fertility.

When a person, especially children are exposed to lead poisoning “time”, now becomes the critical factor. The blood tests currently being used can only detect lead poisoning in the human body for up to approximately 30 days from the time of the last exposure. If the ZPP test is used lead may be detectable up to possibly 3 months after the initial exposure. After that all is lost. NTCED provides the critical medical testing that can detect lead in the human body for a far longer period of time after the initial exposure. This will help thousands in their lead litigation cases.
