is investigating claims whether childrens' jewelery contained a highly used to make batteries and plastics. This was, of course, being exported to the United States so our little dumplings could chew on them. Walmart and Claire's Stores have been removing Chinese-made childrens' jewelery from their shelves after reports that some bracelets and pendants had been found to contain the heavy metal cadmium. Cadmium, for those not in the know, is a highly toxic metal used in batteries, metal coatings and plastics and has been shown to cause lung cancer. I have blogged over and over again questioning whether we should trust anything coming from China. I think not. Add to this the milk poisoning, the dog food poisoning, and contamination of construction material and you continuously have big problems from a country that is churning out products in order to drive their economic monstrosity of a country. This is all bad.
