1-20-16 – Dr. Hildy® and Guests Dr. Ernest P. Chiodo,
‘LEAD IN OUR WATERS, AIR, SOIL and FOOD’
(2:00-4:00pm Mountain; 3:00-5:00pm Central; 4:00-6:00pm Eastern)
As with the Porter Ranch gas leak, there is currently another point of toxic concern in the US that is receiving a lot of press. Tap water in Flint, Michigan has been discovered to have toxic levels of lead, due to the city switching water supplies two years ago. The situation has become so dire that President Obama has declared a state of emergency in the area. But lead toxicity is nothing new to the US. In the not-too-distant past, leaded gasoline was a dangerous source of lead. In 1968 alone, 500 million pounds of this metal were released into the atmosphere from gasoline pumps and other sources. Once federal guidelines were established in the 1970’s, lead levels began to fall – by an astronomical 78% during the period from 1976 to 1991.
This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy welcomes returning guest, Dr. Ernest P. Chiodo, to discuss the dangers of lead poisoning, and how to detect it. Our oft-times guest, Film Producer Veronica Hendricks will also join in.
In addition to being a physician, attorney, industrial hygienist, industrial toxicologist and biomedical engineer, Dr. Chiodo is licensed to practice medicine in New York, Michigan, Florida, and Illinois. He served, 20 years ago, as the Medical Director of the City of Detroit and of the Detroit Health Department and was the chief physician responsible for measures designed to protect the public health of over one million persons living or working in the City of Detroit at the time of his service. He will be able to share information with us about the health problems today from the lead contamination for over 100,000 children and adults in nearby Flint.
Lead interferes with a variety of body processes and is toxic to many organs and tissues including the heart, bones, intestines, kidneys, and reproductive and nervous systems. It interferes with the development of the nervous system and is therefore particularly toxic to children, causing potentially permanent learning and behavior disorders. Symptoms include abdominal pain, confusion, headache, anemia, irritability, and in severe cases seizures, coma, and death.
Lead poisoning can cause a variety of symptoms and signs which vary depending on the individual and the duration of lead exposure. Symptoms are nonspecific and may be subtle, and someone with elevated lead levels may have no symptoms. Symptoms usually develop over weeks to months as lead builds up in the body during a chronic exposure, but acute symptoms from brief, intense exposures also occur. Because of this, it may be hard to diagnosis without laboratory analysis, the main tool in diagnosing and assessing the severity of lead poisoning.
Join Dr. Hildy and her guests this week as they discuss the dangers of lead poisoning on One Cell One Light Radio!
