I agree David that tougher lead legislation on toys and jewelry IV kids from China and other Asian markets needs II be enacted. If even 1 child gets sick or dies, its wrong. I lead can be gotten rid out of gasoline, then its beyond sick that III decades later our kids are still dealing with it in their playthings.
The last things kids should have II worry about is having brain and auditory problems such as Attention Deicit Disrder & Autism or heart and internal organ problems from toys & jewelry. We want kids II have high IQ's so they can contribute II society & not be a burden II it.
