Can Your Lipstick Give You Lead Poisoning?!

Filed under: Health

lipstick-found-to-contain-lead-web.jpg

Beware when you give your love that Valentine's Day smooch!

While lead is banned in paint due to its toxicity levels, a study has shown that lead can be found in MANY lipstick brands.

The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics did a study and tested over 400 different kinds of lipstick.

Bad news. Most tested positive for lead, which is not safe at any level.

What's even worse, five of the nine worst offenders are made by L'Oreal, the world's largest cosmetic maker.

L'Oreal and the FDA insist there is no need to panic but CSC co-founder Stacy Malkan begs to differ.

She says the following on the lead levels:

Recognizing that there is no safe level of lead exposure, we need to be protecting women and children from all levels of exposure. There are no safety standards.

If you're wary of lead, you may want to tone down the lipstick use!

Report Finds Apple And Grape Juices Contain High Levels Of Arsenic

Filed under: FoodHealthCancer

Apple and grape juice

This isn't good!

A Consumer Reports sample of various apple and grape juice brands found roughly 10% had "total arsenic levels that exceeded federal drinking-water standards."

Even worse is that most arsenic levels exceeding 10 parts per billion (the limit for drinking water) were found to be an inorganic arsenic, which is a known carcinogen!

Although there are no federal limits on arsenic or lead levels in juice, one in four samples yielded levels of lead higher than the FDA’s bottled-water limit of 5 ppb.

Scientific evidence suggests chronic exposure to arsenic and lead, even at levels below water standards, can result in serious health problems, so why is the FDA strictly limiting levels in drinking water and not other liquids like juice?

After all, you know who loves juice? Kids!

The report references a poll of parents that found 35% of children under 5 drink juice in quantities exceeding pediatricians recommendations. Sounds like a lot of juice and, possibly, a lot of exposure to carcinogens to us!

Joshua Hamilton, Ph.D., a toxicologist specializing in arsenic research, makes a good point in favor of stricter FDA regulation of arsenic levels in juice, saying:

"People sometimes say, ‘If arsenic exposure is so bad, why don’t you see more people sick or dying from it?’ But the many diseases likely to be increased by exposure even at relatively low levels are so common already that its effects are overlooked simply because no one has looked carefully for the connection."

The findings have sparked the Consumers Union to campaign that the FDA set arsenic and lead standards for apple and grape juice to meet, if not be lowered, the 5 ppb lead limit for bottled water.

Makes sense to us, what do U think???

Paul Wesley And Douglas Booth Round Out The Cast Of Romeo And Juliet!

Filed under: Film Flickers

paul-wesley-and-douglas-booth-join-the-cast-of-romeo-and-juliet

This cast is rounding out pretty nicely!

AKA lots of HOTTIES are jumping on bard!

Ed Westwick, Holly Hunter, Hailee Steinfield have already signed on to the upcoming Carlo Carlei-directed adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet - as Tybalt, the Nurse, and of course, the leading lady respectively - and now, sources close to production have learned that The Vampire Diaries' Paul Wesley will be also joining the cast as Count Paris, while Douglas Booth has nabbed the iconic male lead!

Hawt! Hawt! Hawt!

If we were Hailee, we'd have just as difficult time choosing between the two!

Unfortunately, we all know how that story ends! Ha!

But hey, looking forward to the eye candy along the way!

What do U think?? Are U looking forward to the latest Romeo and Juliet?
