I love it, Andrew! 😀

I’ve heard of saturnine gout. But, I thought it was part of history, given that lead plumbing has virtually died out.

There are lots of environmental toxins that can cause secondary gout. I tend to lump them all together, but it might be better if I investigate specific toxins more (?)

The answer, as with all secondary gout causes, is to get rid of the root cause if you can. But, this often takes a long time. So, it’s usually best to take something to lower uric acid, until the root cause can be stopped. Or, in case it can’t be stopped.
