Lead can enter the human body by contact or through the intake of food (65%), water (20%) and air (15%). However, only bioavailable lead can be absorbed by the human body, when ingested.
Lead which comes from ammunition is in metallic form. Therefore, even if it is accidentally ingested in fine fragments, cannot be absorbed directly by the human body.
Moreover, the fragments of lead in game meat are concentrated in those areas which are regularly and completely eliminated with the usual practices of slaughter.
All food, water, soft drinks, tea, coffee, alcoholic drinks and food supplements contain bioavailable lead ions in varying amounts.
