    The summary and the overall opinion can be found at:

    Thanks for posting this.

    From what I can see in the summary, this is the most relevant point:

    "The limited available evidence does not indicate a different average dietary exposure or risk for vegetarians from the adult population, consumer groups with higher lead exposure levels include high consumers of game meat (1.98 to 2.44 μg/kg b.w. per day) and high consumers of game offal (0.81 to 1.27 μg/kg b.w. per day). The estimated dietary exposures of these groups are also within, or at the higher end of the range of the respective BMDL intake values."
