HYGIENE CARE FOR PEOPLE AT RISK OF LEAD CONTAMINATION
(Lead Recycling Company (Foundry/Smelting), located in Guayaquil, Ecuador; South America.)
As a concern for the occupational health of the people working at the foundry we have implementing a Chelating treatment in order to drop the lead levels in blood to its normal parameter for people working in this kind of business.
26 Employees began treatment with Bio-Chelat Environmental Defense™, people with at least 40 u.g./dl. of lead in blood. The patients began with the treatment as follows:
- First week at 30 drops daily
- Second week at 60 drops daily
- And Four weeks more at 120 drops daily.
- Total weeks of treatment 6.
After finishing the 6 week treatment the patients had another blood test for lead, presenting a good decrease of lead in blood. The following chart has 15 of the 26 patients taking Bio-Chelat Environmental Defense™.
As we can see, the lead level in patients dropped to an average of approximately 25% with the exception of patient number 4 who we suspect did not follow the treatment at all. It should also be mentioned that no employee was off work during this period: they all continued working in their usual area.
