Toxic metal cadmium found in

LOS ANGELES -- Jewelry with the toxic metal cadmium is showing up on the shelves of national retailers including Ross, Nordstrom Rack and Papaya, according to newly released test results. Analysis done for the nonprofit Center for Environmental Health revealed some jewelry sold with women´s dresses and shirts was nearly pure cadmium, which can cause cancer and reproductive harm after prolonged exposure. (Snip) No laws address cadmium in adult jewelry, however, and last year the center decided to check those products. Lab testing found 31 adult jewelry items purchased from retail stores were at least 40 percent cadmium, and most

Comments:
In 2010 the AP reported that some Chinese jewelry manufacturers were substituting cadmium for lead; Congress had imposed usage of lead following a series of imported-product safety scandals. The “jewelry industry helped write voluntary U.S. standards following the AP investigation, but the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission did not mandate any cadmium limits.”

Cadmium plating has been used on the majority of nuts, bolts and washers used on every consumer product in the last 50 years or so.

This is ridiculous. Don´t eat your jewelry in large quantities.

Cadmium is only an issue if you ingest or inhale it. Most adult women do not ingest or inhale their costume jewelry.

The pathway for cadmium toxicity is usually inhalation and mostly for cigarette smokers.
You´re already getting a low amount from the foods you eat and the water you drink.

There is no pathway for skin exposure.

More feigned hysteria.

I am betting this article is an effort to tee up a class action lawsuit directed against anyone involved in making or retailing anything containing cadmium. This is a familiar pattern.

I try to avoid buying anything from China, especially that my grandchildren might put in their mouths. They put poison in paint on toys, they put corrosives in sheet rock that ruins houses, now cancer causing jewelry. It certainly looks intentional.
I am absolutely furious that congress voted to keep us in the dark about whether our food comes from China!

U.S. and Mexican officials have agreed on a plan to handle the approaching migrant caravan making their way up from CentralAmerica, a senior administration official told FoxNews on Thursday. Under the deal, which was developed over the course of several months, Mexico requested that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) establish shelters along its southern border with Central America, the official said.

In a startling revelation, Guatemala’s president announced in the country’s largest newspaper that nearly 100 ISIS terrorists have been apprehended in the impoverished Central American nation. Why should Americans care about this? (Snip) A terrorist could have easily slipped in considering the minors, coined Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC), were not properly vetted and some turned out to be violent gangbangers who went on to commit heinous crimes in their adopted land of opportunity.

Talk about service. A Michigan pizzeria employee went out of his way--quite literally--to deliver a couple of pies to a man battling cancer. When Julie and RichMorgan lived in BattleCreek 25 years ago, Rich would always bring home Steve’s Pizza for dinner each payday, even though money was tight. The couple has since relocated to Indianapolis, but those pizzas--the taste and the memories--have stuck with them. (Snip) “And so, while Rich and I slept, at 2:30 a.m., Dalton rolled into our driveway, left the car running and delivered two extra special pizzas to my waiting family,” Julie said. “He told them we were in his

Hillary Clinton had her security clearance removed over the summer “at her request,” the Senate Judiciary Committee, who received confirmation from the State Department, revealed Friday. The news comes as part of an update from the State Department of “its ongoing review of the mishandling of classified information related to the use of Clinton’s non-government email server,” a news release from the committee said. Five other people labeled by the former secretary of state as being researchers, “including close aide Cheryl Mills,” also lost their clearance, the news release said.

HillaryClinton, in a television interviewTuesday, rejected the idea thatDemocrats should be “civil” withRepublicans in the age of DonaldTrump, embracing a more confrontational and aggressive political approach. “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton said. Speaking to CNN’s ChristianeAmanpour, the 2016Democratic presidential nominee said, “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back theHouse and/or theSenate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thingRepublicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

The Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus announced last year it was closing after a 146-year run, largely because of high operating costs, costly legal battles with animal rights groups and declining ticket sales, especially after elephants were retired from the show. Brett Kavanaugh´s embattled nomination for the Supreme Court has become a circus, and it´s time for the Senate Judiciary Committee to consider closing it to the public. As Kavanaugh´s nomination has shown, these hearings only serve the objectives of special interests and certain politicians, not the general public.

TAPACHULA, MEXICO -- A growing caravan of roughly 7,000 Central American immigrants continued its trek toward the United States on Sunday, blowing past Mexican police and immigration officials. The group, which has swelled in size in recent days, set out before dawn on the only road out of the small Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo. It arrived in the afternoon in the city of Tapachula, more than 20 miles away. The migrants, nearly all from the poor and violent nation of Honduras, posed a growing political and humanitarian calamity for Mexico,

Every big U.S. election is interesting, but the coming midterms are fascinating for a reason most commentators forget to mention: The Democrats have no issues. The economy is booming and America’s international position is strong. In foreign affairs, the U.S. has remembered in the nick of time what Machiavelli advised princes five centuries ago: Don’t seek to be loved, seek to be feared. The contrast with the Obama years must be painful for any honest leftist.

This is beyond odd, but here goes. I rise to defend Hillary Clinton. She is under attack and this time, the long knives are wielded by members of her own clan. Suddenly, after two years of indulging Clinton’s blame games and pity parties, lefty pundits say she’s talking too much, she’s stuck in the past, she had her chance and she blew it. Vanity Fair, declaring that she “still hasn’t learned the lessons of #MeToo,” is furious that Clinton said her husband’s Oval Office dalliance with Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power

San Francisco - Cow´s milk is allegedly a symbol used by white supremacists, according to PETA. In a recent statement, the animal advocate organization explains that dairy milk has been the drink of choice for supremacists because "the dairy industry inflicts extreme violence on other living beings." According to PETA, "some people might be surprised to learn that cows used by the dairy industry are slaughtered after about five years because their bodies are so spent from being kept constantly pregnant." (Snip) Peta links this concept to white supremacy by saying cows are controlled by humans, similar to the mindset of

The fact that Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyers refused to release the results of her polygraph exam until the day before her testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee last month caused some suspicion. And when we finally got a look at them, a lot of Judge Kavanaugh’s supporters were confirmed in their suspicions. It turned out that Ford’s examiner, former FBI agent Jeremiah Hanafin, only asked her two relevant questions. And that’s not how most folks imagine polygraph exams are supposed to go.
