Tackling the Threat of Lead Poisoning Posed by Game Meat: SelectScience interviews Senior Researcher, Katrin Löschner, on her recent research into lead nanoparticles

Press/Media: Press / Media


Lead is a highly toxic metal that can accumulate in the human body, causing serious adverse effects. Food is a major source of lead exposure, for example from the ingestion of contaminated water or cereals. Some game meat may contain high levels of lead fragments, as a result of being shot with lead bullets. A recently published study was able to detect lead nanoparticles in game meat using mass spectrometry technology. SelectScience® spoke to Senior Researcher, Katrin Löschner, to find out more.
