Yesterday’s Today programme (at around 0639 and 0812) disclosed that high lead levels can make us more aggressive.
We know that ‘Lead damages the brain’ and ‘this is why there is a drive to keep lead levels very low and to keep lead levels in children particularly low’.
Hmmm. Makes you wonder doesn’t it?
Another scare story on lead?
Also in the Guardian.
PS Africa was amazing again – all those fruit bats, dying baby elephants, lilac-breasted rollers, carmine bee-eaters and shoebills (aren’t they scary?)
