Kids’ Jewelry Warning

45426348_a8c2eb33be_oIt might be a good idea to stealthily take away your kids’ metal costume jewelry. The Associated Press tested 103 pieces of children’s jewelry made in China and available for sale in the U.S. and found shockingly high levels of cadmium—a dangerous metal that can cause cancer and kidney disease—in 12 of the pieces. These products had at least 10 percent cadmium by weight and one reportedly came in at 91 percent. The belief is that manufacturers are substituting cadmium for lead, another toxic chemical that was found in high levels in children’s jewelry. The Consumer Product Safety Commission is investigating. Until we know more, it’s best to keep metal trinkets away from your kids.

    Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? With thanks

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a great job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very fast for me on Internet explorer. Excellent Blog!
