If I'm right, someone else can go for me. I don't know anything about this event, but I think I heard something about this 5 years ago or so
Symptoms: Abdominal pain, Headache, Irritability, and maybe the gums turning blue? A cause typical to adults is drinking homemade alcoholic beverages that were made with a still that used parts of old car radiators. In case you don't like that answer: You can get it from ingesting leaded paint.
