LEAD

Consumption of lead can have some very serious impacts on health. 

High doses of lead can cause brain damage, mental retardation, behavior problems, anemia, and a wide variety of other serious damage to the body parts, and in extreme cases, even death.

Lead is a very useful metal for making things. For decades it was added to paint to make the product last longer and flow easier. The consumption of fuels by motor vehicle engines used to be a source as LEAD was included in the fuel to make the engine run better.

We used to manufacture water pipe made of LEAD. We use to make solder with a lot of LEAD in it because it melted at a low temperature and was much easier to use. Then we used the LEAD-based solder to assemble water pipe systems, including drinking fountains used in schools, and even used the solder to seal food cans. LEAD was everywhere and still is which is why you should have it tested.
