RE: Lead in gardening equipment

If you REALLY want to be an alarmist, many ordinary KEYS have high lead contents, so once the initial bright finish wears off, you come in contact with that lead.  From what I read from my safety articles, the lead transfer is high enough to warrant the handwashing warning.


Maybe that explains my memory loss, or perhaps it was all the mercury that we played with in elementary school.  Or the mugs or candy imported from Mexico.  I don’t know – I forget!  J


Take care.
