Considering how common lead is, one of the most important skills any prepper needs to develop is how to identify lead, its symptoms, and how to avoid getting sick because of it. Lead is a highly toxic metal. Unfortunately, it is also very industry-friendly, which is why it was predominantly used for a wide variety of applications until the 20th century when its hazardous nature came to light. These applications included water pipes, paint, bullets, gasoline, and even cosmetics. It is also used as a shield against radiation.

Lead poisoning symptoms
Friday, August 17, 2018 by: Frances Bloomfield Tags: badhealth, disease prevention, environmental pollution, Heavy metals, heavy metals poisoning, Lead, lead poisoning, poisoning (Natural News) Lead is a naturally-occurring heavy metal abundant in the earth’s crust. It’s also an incredibly toxic metal that can wreak havoc on the human body, even in tiny amounts. When lead enters the human body it replaces key nutrients such as calcium, iron, and zinc — all of which are needed to keep our bodies functioning properly. Young children are the ones most vulnerable to lead poisoning. However, repeated exposure to lead will harm even the hardiest of people. Aside from being common in nature, lead can also be found in and around homes. The materials that contain lead include: lead-based paints (such as the paint used on old toys and the walls of old houses), arts and crafts supplies (such as ceramic glazes), contaminated dust, gasoline products sold outside of the … [Read more...] about This could save your life: Everything you need to know about lead poisoning
NOVICHOK is a highly toxic nerve agent that is so powerful even a pinprick can kill in minutes. The odourless and clear toxin was developed in Russia and is behind the attempted murders of ex-Soviet double agent Sergei Skripal, his daughter Yulia, and the poisoning of a couple in Amesbury, Wilts. How does Novichok kill? Novichok is designed to be among the deadliest nerve agents ever created. Russian scientists who developed it between 1971 and 1993 claim that some variants are up to eight times more potent than the highly toxic VX. Novichok can be ingested through the skin and disrupts the transmission of chemicals through the body's nervous system. One substance, acetylcholine, builds up in the nerves, causing muscles to contract and spasm uncontrollably. Breathing soon becomes impossible as the diaphragm stops working and the victim goes into cardiac arrest as the muscles in the heart fail. What does Novichok do to the human body? Novichok agents, dispersed as an ultra-fine … [Read more...] about How does Novichok kill, what does the nerve agent do to the human body and what are the poisoning symptoms?
Story highlights Almost half of towels tested contained bacteria that can cause food-borne illnesses Washing and drying towels every few days can help prevent the spread of bacteria (CNN)Ever wonder how much bacteria is growing on your kitchen towel? A new study suggests that it may be a lot, and that the amount increases with family size and frequency of meat consumption. Researchers cultured bacteria from 100 kitchen towels after one month of use to determine both the type and amount of bacterial growth. They found that 49% of the towels exhibited growth of bacteria normally found in or on the human body. "In this study, we investigated the potential role of kitchen towels in cross-contamination in the kitchen and various factors affecting the microbial profile and load of kitchen towels," said Susheela D. Biranjia-Hurdoyal, senior lecturer of health sciences at the University of Mauritius and a lead author on the study presented Saturday at the annual meeting of the … [Read more...] about How your kitchen towels could give you food poisoning
