Lead poisoning in "ethnic remedies"

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

July 16 issue of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report describes a case of lead poisoning resulting from a child's consumption of "greta," a traditional Mexican remedy used as a laxative. CDC recommended that health professionals serving communities with "high risk populations should be aware of these high-dose sources of lead exposure" and suggested that parents should be educated about the risks of administering lead-containing substances to their children.
