Article that describes the toxic effect of heavy metals such as lead, brass,
copper, and zinc.

There was a report recently in the Journal of Avian Medicine & Surgery of a hyacinth macaw who nearly died from zinc poisoning
Heavy metal (eg lead or zinc) poisoning should also be considered
Lead poisoning is the most common form of poisoning in the avian species
Zinc poisoning produces similar tozic effects, except that with zinc poisoning, seizures are uncommon
Zinc poisoning was the cause in both of these birds
Zinc poisoning from the 'anti-rust' paint is suspected as the cause of this bird's illness
Heavy metal poisoning should be considered as a reason for unexplained falls from the perch

Signs and Symptoms of Pesticide Poisoning, EC2505
How to recognize and deal with various types of pesticide poisoning.
Wearing protective clothing and equipment when handling or applying pesticides reduces the risk of pesticide poisoning
Risk of pesticide poisoning is reduced because the chance of exposure is reduced
Specific action statements normally follow the route of entry statement and indicate what must be done to prevent poisoning accidents
When this occurs, the applicator increases the potential for pesticide poisoning
Various signs and symptoms are associated with acute poisonings
Examples of chronic poisoning effects may include: Carcinogenicity--ability to produce cancer or to assist carcinogenic chemicals
Anyone who may become exposed to pesticides should be aware of the signs and symptoms of pesticide poisoning
Poisoning signs can be seen by others, for example, vomiting, sweating, or pin-point pupils
Symptoms are any functional changes in normal condition which can be described by the victim of poisoning, and may include nausea, headache, weakness, dizziness, and others
Persons who are frequently involved with pesticides should become familiar with these important steps: Recognize the signs and symptoms of pesticide poisoning for those pesticides you commonly use or to which you may be exposed

In lead poisoning, there is a silent progression of nonspecific symptoms which makes it difficult to detect
But, a variety of other substances contribute to lead poisoning
Nutrition Proper nutrition is important in the prevention of lead poisoning, especially in young children
Lead poisoning can mimic iron deficiency
The occurence of iron deficiency and lead poisoning simulataneously can be synergistic and devastating
Calcium An adequate calcium intake can protect against lead poisoning

caused by chronic exposure to mercury, primarily in young children.
Epidemics of mercury poisoning have followed the release of mercury into the environment from industrial activity, with uptake of methyl mercury from eating fish from Minamata Bay, Japan, and uptake of both inorganic and methyl mercury following the release of mercury vapor and its subsequent deposition in waterways from gold recovery procedures in the Amazon basin
The ingestion of wheat and barley seed treated with an alkyl mercury fungicide for sowing, by a largely illiterate population in Iraq, led to a major outbreak of poisoning with a high fatality rate
