Im pretty sure Im not suffering from any health problems and I assure you Sjoko that Im not siffering from any delusional side effects. Were not talking about some cheap homemade panels. Were talking about panels designed to operate in hospitals and are more common than you realize. Lead poisoning isn't caused from airborne particle cuae they don't float in the air, lead poisoning comes from either injestion or through a open wound of some sort. Lead does not emit noxious gases as far as Im aware of. Lead typically can have conversions done to them chemically to prevent oxidation and contamination of mating surface materials. Ive worked in several buildings with lead lined walls and none of the adults in these building have had anything happen, and we get tested regularly for air quality. Paints that contain lead, which is where most of the lawsuits come from, are the major concern because kids when they are small chew on the stuff. You can't believe how much a kid will knaw on something, I got bite marks on furniture. I even saw a kid lick the carpet at a church once. Arsenic is a bigger problem. There are alot of contruction materials that contain arsenic. I saw play grounds get bulldozed from it. You can encapsulate lots of heavy metals and chemicals by closed cell resins. Did you know that the interior of a new car emits noxious fumes?Originally posted by sjoko2
Anyone who thinks that lead lined panels are safe is, quite simply, fooling themselves, regardless of where and how the lead is fitted.
Main point is not to eat metallic things... Penny's included.
I don't recommend smoking either! Its killed a few folks, maybe smoking has even killed more musicians than Lead has X-Ray Technicians...du ya think??
I apologize for the long post.
