Some of the adverse effects of lead (Pb) may be associated with oxidative damage of lipids, proteins, or DNA. In a previous study a linkage was observed between the susceptibilities of waterfowl species to Pb poisoning with oxidative stress. To investigate this relationship among the individuals of a single species, for 3 wk 4 groups of 12 mallards were fed diets containing high or low levels of vitamin E (20 or 220 UI/kg) and high or low levels of Pb (0 or 2 g/kg). During the first week of Pb… CONTINUE READING
