|"We'll likely never know how many of those dispepsia deaths were from chewing lead."
Is Y'All making fun of me, Ole?
Actually, I just looked up "lead poisoning" in The Merck Manual. It is a coffee table book around here, helps us figure out if someone is breathing or not.
Interestingly, it lists "retaining shot" as a common cause of lead poisoning.
Also, it lists "being shot" as a common cause of many more serious conditions.
Under "symptoms and signs" are some things that could fall into the catagory of "dyspepsia". However, none are listed as "dyspepsia".
Frankly, I would like to know the signs and symptoms of when an Ole is funnin' a Southern Girl. Those are very obtuse and hard to diagnose.
