Even Low Blood Lead Levels Linked to Gout Risk PDF Print E-mail

New York, NY - Even relatively low levels of lead in the blood may be linked to an increased risk of gout, a painful form of arthritis.

But the new findings connect gout risk to low levels of lead in the blood - well within the range currently considered acceptable for adults.
