From the expert
High levels of lead in the body can damage the brain, nerves and blood cells. High concentrations can also affect kidney function and the ability of nerves to conduct messages quickly through the body. Lead can also harm the reproductive organs. There are various early symptoms of lead poisoning including tiredness, headaches, muscle and joint pain, stomach aches and cramps. If untreated, excess lead in the body can cause serious health problems, even if there are no obvious symptoms.
