    Default Lead in handbags!!

    I was watching one of those morning shows, I believe it was CBS this morning..

    They had a lady on there who was telling them how there is more lead in vinyl and pvc handbags made in China than there was in the toys that were recalled!!

    saying that women who carry cheep vinyl bags could be endangering themselves...

    Another good reason to get beautiful leather bags, whoo hooo !!

    My question is, how is it dangerous?
    I know they worried about kids chewing on the toys could get lead poisoning, but what could lead in a bag do to you?

    Any thoughts?

    Oh No...not again.

    I think constant exposure to any heavy metal would be dangerous. I am not sure if lead can be absorbed into the body sub-dermally (through the skin).
    I am guessing it is less dangerous than ingesting lead when kids put toys in their mouth. Now FDA can step in and ban cheap counterfeit merchandise
