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. [size=5]In case you don't like that answer: You can get it from ingesting leaded paint.[/size]
Sorry for writing a novel in the [hide] title.
