The belief that modern technology has eliminated lead poisoning in America is a medical myth abetted by industry, contends Dr. Wedeen in his lively historical account which proves that what you don t know can kill you.Wedeen deals with historical as well as contemporary evidence, with fantasy as well as fact surrounding lead poisoning. He shows that the adulteration of wine with lead was responsible for much of the mythology surrounding gout. To bolster his argument he has included 57 illustrations that capture the impact of medical foibles on the common man."
