    I've been exposed to lead all of my life as I'm 60 yrs old. So far hasn't been a problem for me. All of my siblings are fine. If we have all been exposed to high volumes of lead then why is it such a problem now? I was born in 1955 which means I have been taking in huge amounts of lead. Paint, wallpaper, lip stick, dust. I remember my brother and I playing with lead used for chimney's. We had a "strong man" show (had to pay a penny to get in..lol) and that kind of lead is easy to bend but it looks difficult so it was perfect as part of the act. And how many millions upon millions of people have been easily over-exposed just like me in fact older than me that are doctors, lawyers, CEO's, artists, techies, etc.. Why aren't all of us effected? That's the answer I'm looking for without speculation. Please don't anyone tell me it's "one's diet" especially when I grew up with 7 siblings and we all ate the exact same thing.
