Toxic metal cadmium found in
chain stores´ jewelry for adults

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Harlowe, 10/11/2018 2:57:49 PM

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!

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump met privately Tuesday evening with former President GeorgeW.Bush and former first lady LauraBush on the eve of funeral services for former President George H.W.Bush. The president and first lady traveled via motorcade across the street from the White House to the BlairHouse, which is used to accommodate guests of honor. They appeared to warmly exchange pleasantries with GeorgeW. and LauraBush before the four entered the building without taking questions. President Trump and the first lady exited about 20 minutes later and returned to the White House.

Back in the mafia’s heyday, FBI and IRS agents had a set of surveillance rules. If one mobster showed up in town, pay notice. If two arrived, be suspicious. If three or four were in the same vicinity, something was going down. And if five or more headed to the same neck of the woods, a meeting of consiglieri or La Cosa Nostra’s council was likely happening. (Snip) There also was another rule of thumb: Mobsters would always have the same calling card, or excuse, to be in town. Attending a funeral (the mid-1980s mob meeting in Chicago) or a vacation in the sticks (the infamous 1957 gathering in upstate New York) were some of

A reporter on Monday challenged President Trump while he spoke with reporters outside the White House over his assertion that his family separation policy was a continuation from the Obama administration. “You said your policy at the border was the same as the Obama administration’s. It wasn’t," the reporter said. “Obama had a separation policy," Trump replied. "We all had the same policy.” “Sir, it was different--you decided to prosecute everyone at the border," the reporter responded.

US leading the charge in pushing

Under the Trump administration, the U.S. is leading the charge in pushing back against the U.N.’s migration agenda--a move that is picking up support from other countries and giving political cover to those seeking to join them. The Trump administration announced last December that it would withdraw from the U.N.´s Global Migration Compact--due to be adopted by an intergovernmental conference in Morocco next month. Then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson argued last year that the compact could undermine America´s right to enforce its immigration laws and secure its borders. “The United States supports international

In a remarkably inappropriate and blatantly political statement Wednesday, U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts chastised President Trump for the president’s quite accurate criticism of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and its rogue district and appellate court judges. The spectacle of the ostensibly nonpolitical chief justice engaged in a dispute with the president of the United States is insulting to the Supreme Court and to our system of justice. Shame on the chief justice. What he did is unforgivable, especially after the corrosive Senate confirmation battle over now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was the subject of bitter and

An alleged voter fraud scheme in which Skid Row’s homeless were being offered money and cigarettes in exchange for “false and forged signatures” on ballot petitions and registration documents has been uncovered in Los Angeles, prosecutors announced Tuesday.

Trump is light years from being Jesus, but the hatred of his enemies has reached biblical proportions. Think about it. (Snip) Like Jesus’s accusers, Trump’s accusers lust for power. Under the pretense of some righteous cause, they’re scorching the Earth to get it. “We owe it to the American people to be there for them,” Nancy Pelosi told New York Times columnist Paul Krugman recently. “… [A]nd if there is some collateral damage for others who do not share our views, well, so be it …” Lincoln warned us against giving power to people who want it so badly that

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump.

Her aides have been quietly shopping for presidential campaign headquarters space in the Boston area in recent weeks, according to a source with knowledge of the move.

President Donald Trump, future House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer erupted in an on-camera fight in the Oval Office over border wall funding on Tuesday. The president argued that funding the wall was a “national emergency” and proposed $5 billion in funding. Schumer refused, insisting that he would only provide just $1.6 billion in border security funds. In response, Trump said he would shut down the government and take responsibility for it if they failed to include additional wall funding.
