My friend just called me to say that his son fainted at school today because his class had to have heir blood taken "To test for lead levels". This
sounds fishy to me, but let me say, I have no kids, so maybe this is common...? In my mind, if there were any reason to check for something like that,
I would take my child to my personal physician to have a test done. I certainly would NOT allow my kid to stand in an assembly-line of children to
have blood taken.
Apparently, this is district wide, (or wider).
Is this something that goes on? Am I just "paranoid"? I don't recall this happening when I was in school. BTW, his son is 10 y/o
