The first question I would ask is, " Is this true?"
The next would be, " Can this lead be transferred to the food inside?
Remember a few years ago when there the big scare becasue lead is used in the filling material used by dentists? Turns out that that lead was in a form that was not a health problem.
Too many people worrying about too many things that are not real hazards.
I grew up when lead was allowed to be used in housepaint, but I never chewed the walls or the window sills, so there were no ill effects.
So what was the cause?

The article was in our local newspaper so I assume it is true.Not that I believe everything I read but an ounce of prevention goes a long way.I just chucked my
kids Scooby Doo lunch box in the trash and bought him
an insulated type( Now to see if those are hazardous
in the future).He was due for a new one anyways so...

Forget the lead in the luch box. What about, MERCURY in the class room. That's right.

The fluorecent light tubes contain droplets of Mercury (don't believe me? Check it out yourself!). After years of janitors (maintenance engineers for the PC ers) dropping these tubes in the schools and spilling the mercury in tiny droplets, the vapor gets released in the air and is breathed by your children. In turn, this causes neurological disorders in the children resulting in so called Hyperactivity disorder. All it really is, is a bunch of adolescent "mad hatters" running around the place doped up on Ritalin!

Hey, sounds like a good theory to me![:D]

Do any of you know what is the vapor pressure of Mercury? I belive it to be high enough that Mercury vapors do not pose a real hazard. Is there any evidence on this?0

IIRC, Atomic mercury is not a health threat at STP. It can be dangerous if heated to oxidation. I don't think it can survive as an ionized gas in an oxygen-rich atmosphere, so a burst mercury vapor lamp probably isn't going to be a problem. The threat comes from hydrides, sufides and oxides of mercury. Also, carbonaceous mercury is extremely dangerous, a grignard reagent.

I think most mercury exposure comes from atmospheric mercury oxide as a natural product of buring coal. But in the atmosphere it is in such low concentrations taht it isn't a threat. However, mercury tends to concentrate as it progresses up the foodchain. If you eat the major predators in an ecosystem you will acquire mercury from that habit. It is dangerous. Don't eat shark, swordfish, or lake trout. Riiiight.

RE: On a serious note: Parents read !!!

Warning:Another life experience:

7th grade science teacher Cassimir Mica used to let us pour? from a bottle a fluid chunk of Mercury and swish it around in our hands to feel the weight and fluidity of it. I thought it was the coolest thing and did it often. After class we ran to the lunch room and ingested our sloppy joes or similar lunchroom fare.
What are my chances?

Well, what do you think? When was the last time you had a check up from the neck up?

What? Have you been sitting on your hand to numb it while wearing a glove then play with yourself again?
