People are talking about it, at least in the veterinary pathology community. It's known in the U.S. among those in wildlife management that most of this is related to lead ammo.

My place is constantly being shelled with lead by hunters, hate to think of what it's doing to my soil.

Are you growing anything in the soil? I would be cautious before using treatment. Some plants will actually clean the soil... I had a friend that studied this in college (specifically using sunflowers to filter radiation due to uranium deposits)
