About Lead and Cadmium hazards:
Lead can be toxic if ingested by infants and young kids and can cause severe and permanent adverse health effects in developing children and adults. Cadmium, a known carcinogen (or Cancer-causing agent), is often substituted for lead in inexpensive jewelry, leading to long-term health problems, especially in children.
