Lead is a soft toxic metal, and people has been pulling out and using it for over 8500 years. Nicander of Colophon, an Ancient Greek was the first to find out the lead toxicity in humans in 2000 BCE. Again in the 17th century it was noted by an unidentified scholar in Germany, that the monk’s who drank the sweet wine which had been sweetened by the Lead Sugar which is known by Litharge or Lead Acetate. It has developed Colic which has similar signs to Lead poisoning.
Just in the US, the yearly accounts for over 2 billion dollars with a yearly sales over 270 million individual lipsticks being sold.
Lead has one major problem that it is often stored in the bone marrow. It’s a free floating metal when goes in our body and it can be dangerous because it can imitate other important metals which the body uses like zinc, calcium and iron. It means that lead can bind and react with the proteins and molecules and cause a terrible effect. Now, the good news is that your body stores this safely in your bones till it has the space to do so. But, the bad news is that if you break a bone or become pregnant the lead is released into the body again. It is certainly a bad news for the pregnant women because lead has given some negative effects on the development of foetuses at a very low level.
Keeping this in mind with this example, if you use lipstick frequently, you should review the use of lipstick and may be bring it down to zero.
