Are we being Lead Astray!

Recently I have been hearing about all these recall of children's products with traces of lead. Is nothing sacred! I was doing my daily visit of all my favorite green sites when I came across Lipstick:Leaded or Unleaded on The article describes some of the dangers of lead. Through tests they found it hinders brain development and causes kidney problems. It also discusses the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics report "A Poison Kiss:" The Problem of Lead in Lipstick. They tested 33 lipstick and found that two-thirds had lead levels higher than the FDA's allowable level. Do you Kiss your Mother with that Mouth! I'm sure as hell not going to, I'm on a mission to find the perfect lipstick.
