    yea.. I mean.. clearly, it's regulation that kills chinese jobs which are, by FAR, more important than the lives of American children. Some capitalista asshole insists that a little lead and cadmium is good for a growing childs brain stem.. and.. if not, SURELY the market will correct this after a few dead babies.

    Ravi has apparently had too much lead already. Please keep her away from the cadmium.

    About 4 years ago there was a huge recall of Chinese-made incentive toys that were being passed out nation wide by library reading programs.

    I don't think ppl realize how LITTLE an amount of lead a child has to ingest for it to be lethal. And if you don't know they've eaten it, it's too late by the time they start showing symptoms.

    It takes about the amount of a pencil eraser. Not the kind you stick on the pencil, the kind that's built on the pencil.

    Not only that, the Chinese usually have children making the damn things in the first place.
