« Daughter Toes the Line | Main | TV Is Still Getting Worse? Sorry, We Didn’t Notice »

Isn't the big problem that lead is absorbed into the skin? So having a very small amount applied directly to the skin for most of every day would probably get a lot more lead into the bloodstream than any amount hanging around on the wall.

My wife and I were talking about this whole lead thing the other day and came to the decision that part of the very small allowed amounts are probably because if everything is allowed to be at a higher but still safe level then the cumulative effect of all those safe amounts could turn dangerous.

Or something like that.

Yeah, I still have that concern. I just want to be careful about scaring people unless I'm 100 percent sure I'm right to do so.

First, kids dying from lead in toys. Now, they find high levels of lead in lipsticks. What's next - lead in food? Are women going to start dying now too from using lipstick too much?


There's a detailed report about it at http://www.myproductalert.com/lead-in-lipsticks.html

It's ridiculous, isn't it? Thanks for the link.
