Hazards of Eating Wild Game Shot with Lead Bullets

A study that examined the lead levels of more than 700 residents in North Dakota revealed the hazards of eating wild game shot with lead bullets. People who ate wild game killed with lead bullets had higher levels of lead than those who didn't. Although not dangerous for most people, North Dakota health officials recommend that pregnant women and children under six years old avoid eating venison killed with lead bullets.
