Kiss of Death – FDA Finds Lead in 400 Lipsticks

Danger! Women are killing themselves and so are the men who are kissing them! An analysis by the FDA showed lead in every one of the 400 lipsticks they tested. Lead is extremely poisonous  and should not be in any product that is ingested.

From Wikipedia – Lead poisoning  is a medical condition in humans and other vertebrates caused by increased levels of the heavy metal lead in the body. Lead interferes with a variety of body processes and is toxic to many organs and tissues including the heart, bones, intestines, kidneys, and reproductive and nervous systems. It interferes with the development of the nervous system and is therefore particularly toxic to children, causing potentially permanent learning and behavior disorders. Symptoms include abdominal pain, confusion, headache, anemia, irritability, and in severe cases seizures, coma, and death.

Routes of exposure to lead include contaminated air, water, soil, food, and consumer products. Lipstick is a consumer product.

While it is greatly contested, many people believe that the average woman eats 2 lipsticks a year. That add up to a lot of lead over a lifetime.
