Another item to add to your Lead List is car keys!
I was just over at one of my favorite blogs, Green Talk, who had an interesting video about the amount of lead that are in keys, with the reminder that there isn’t ever a safe level. Honestly, I never really thought about the amount of lead they put in keys, but NOW as I am thinking of my daughter who just as of yesterday was dragging daddy’s keys around the room, it’s on my mind. What the hell – car keys!?!
So many people let their kids play with car keys, as it truly is an effective way to get them to stay occupied in the grocery cart while they wait in line to pay for their organic munchies. I guess this is a huge NO NO. Do not let the babes put those keys in their hands or mouths! It also sucks to hear that most women have lead dust on the bottom of their purses since we toss our keys in there.
What a drag. It’s not like we can really forgo the car keys.
