    Mine are high risk circumstances, disabled and home- bound in a home consructed in 1920. There are high levels of lead in the home, I still haven’t resources even for replacing lead pipe plumbing. Although, my consumption of water here is somewhat limited, gourmet coffee brewed morning and again afternoons approximatly 20 cups daily. I do shower daily. My questions are these, I have been on a strong vitamin and supplement regimen 10 out of the last 17 years of my residence here. In that residence I currently have no options. Mentioned regimen consists of Vitamins A, B Complex, C, and E including 1 daily multible. Supplements include CoQ10, Calcium, and Fish Oil. My understanding has been that these are a strong and good aggressive defense and or treatment against lead poisoning, isn’t that correct? I do hope to be tested particularly at my next medical visit. However I do have and have had regular blood testing, wouldn’t danger signs likely be picked up in these? I do have and have not had any evident symptoms of this other than the slight long term memory loss, some slight forgetfullness. I do though understand my age is a factor in these. Disability is a circulatory effective seizure disorder, non-neurological. Absolute neurological health and stability determined after a 5 year examination and diagnosis by a council of several pysicians including neurologists. These approximately 20 years past. Thank You
