This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy welcomes returning guest, Dr. Ernest P. Chiodo, to discuss the dangers of lead poisoning, and how to detect it. Our oft-times guest, Film Producer, Veronica Hendricks will also join in. In addition to being a physician, attorney, industrial hygienist, industrial toxicologist and biomedical engineer, Dr. Chiodo is licensed to practice medicine in New York, Michigan, Florida, and Illinois. He served, 20 years ago, as the Medical Director of the City of Detroit and of the Detroit Health Department and was the chief physician responsible for measures designed to protect the public health of over one million persons living or working in the City of Detroit at the time of his service. He will be able to share information with us about the health problems now for over 100,000 children and adults in nearby Flint.
Lead interferes with a variety of body processes and is toxic to many organs and tissues including the heart, bones, intestines, kidneys, and reproductive and nervous systems. It interferes with the development of the nervous system and is therefore particularly toxic to children, causing potentially permanent learning and behavior disorders. Symptoms include abdominal pain, confusion, headache, anemia, irritability, and in severe cases seizures, coma, and death.
