lead in hunters’ brains

Dr. William Cornatzer, clinical professor of medicine at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine & Health Sciences:

X-rays reveal about 60 percent of venison contains lead.

Shot fragments.

The discovery prompted North Dakota to warn pregnant women and children 6 and under not to eat venison killed with ammunition containing lead.

“I knew good and well after seeing that image that I had been eating a lot of lead fragments over the years.”
