Lead & the Media

Article up on CNN.com reads:

“Lead from bullets could pose risk for game eaters”

The hypothesis is that the led from the bullet is causing increased (but not dangerous) levels of lead in those who eat wild game.

But not a single word mentioned whether the study tested the wild game itself for lead poisoning and whether deer and such may be ingesting lead from tainted water sources.  Nope, just blame it on the bullets!

Why, because if you blame the bullets for being evil lead. You can argue they are a danger to both the environment and to the hunter. And ban bullets…the end goal!

UPDATE:CDC Study contradicts the above…   [Courtesy of Call me Ahab]
