CDC Lead Ammo study

Shows no health when eating meat harvested using traditional lead rounds.

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study on human lead levels of hunters in North Dakota has confirmed what hunters throughout the world have known for hundreds of years, that consuming game harvested with traditional ammunition poses absolutely no health risk to people, including children, and that the call to ban lead ammunition was and remains a scare tactic being pushed by anti-hunting groups to forward their political agenda.

Good to know.  I remember reading a somewhat hysterical news piece in the local rag last year which ran right before deer season about the horrible dangers of eating meat that had been shot with traditional lead ammo.  It is comforting to know that the CDC has said that it does not pose a danger, even to children.

  1. Whew, it’s a good thing we went and wasted all that money and food, shutting down all those game meat programs and doing these studies. I was wrought with anxiety, expecting heavy metal poisoning to strike at any time! Waiting through fifteen years of shooting and eating game, in fact. You know, you never can trust empirical evidence.
