The China Syndrome

cute can kill you!

Do you feel sluggish after lunch?

Perhaps it's the lead content in your lunch box....

In an effort to promote healthy eating habits among children in California, the California State government distributed about 56,000 lunch boxes. Like everyone else, they wanted to save some money, and so they purchased the lunch boxes from China.

The lunch boxes contain unsafe levels of lead, which can cause brain damage if ingested by young children or over long-term exposure.

Wow, remember the good old days when only kids who ate US-made paint chips got lead poisoning?
