Lead Exposure, Hunting and Wild Game: What You Need to Know
This video is a 10 minute public health message that focuses on lead; a toxic substance that humans can be exposed to in a variety of ways, including through the foods we eat. It describes what lead is, where it is found and how lead exposure can affect our health. The video also provides ways to reduce lead exposure that may occur through hunting or eating wild game shot with lead ammunition. This video is geared toward First Nations communities and others that value hunting as an important part of their lifestyle.
