Mardi Gras beads TOXIC

Mardi Gras beads Contain HIGH levels of arsenic and lead- keep away from children.  NOT a toy!

Brenda Elliott's insight:

From http://www.healthystuff.org/
Just in time for Mardi Gras we tested another batch of beads, this time we
purchased Mardi Gras beads from wholesale retailers in New Orleans and
found that these beads are still filled with toxic chemicals like arsenic,
lead and halogens.  Over 70% of the products tested (34 of 48) had levels
of lead above 100 ppm. Phillip Bouton | Program Manager | Healthy Homes
Program Tel: 614.645.6226; Fax: 614.645.7155; Pbouton@columbus.govColumbus
 Public Health 240 Parsons Avenue, Columbus, Ohio 43215 The leading
preventable causes of housing-related death, disease, and disability are
asthma, lead poisoning, house fires, falls, burns and scald injuries, and
drowning in bathtubs and pools. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer
among nonsmokers.
