Hello I have a problem. My brother is trying to commit suicide by giving himself lead poisoning. He is grinding up fishing weights with a file, into powder. We are trying to get him help. How much of this lead powder would be fatal? He told me he ground up 5 weights and swallowed the powder with water. I convinced him to stop for the time. but how much of this can be fatal and over how long of a time period?
