Seriously....When i started reading this i thought the results were from a load you were using but i was trying to figure out the jargon you were using and then i realized what it was. LOL. I'm actually going to do my blood work tomorrow and go see my doctor in a couple of weeks. Hopefully he's still adding the lead check in mine so i can see. Mine was hovering around 5 i think which is just slightly high.

The trick is to stop stirring the fired brass into your beer.

yeah i had mine start testing me a couple of years ago. I think my first test was maybe a 7 and it's pretty much been around 5 since. When i seen the 4.9 i was thinking grains and trying to figure out what the hell kind of powder ug/dl was.

Drinking plenty of milk may be a good idea. I'm fuzzing the details, but something about the way calcium interacts with lead on the cellular level can protect from lead poisoning. Prevents the lead from being absorbed, or something like that. Still worth getting tested periodically, but it may help keeps those numbers down.

No confusion on your part, just my stupidity and not reading the whole thing.

OJ cleans lead out too but i think you said you can't drink much.
