Yep, I just found out that my dinner dishes contain lead. No wonder they were burning hot when coming out of the microwave after 30 seconds! We had a RS activity a couple nights ago and a brother in our ward brought a device that tested for lead in our dishes. And mine showed up containing lead. So, I got to go to IKEA (where NONE of their dishes contain lead, even those made in China) and buy a whole new set of bowls and plates. By the way, my aunt's dinner dishes come from the same manufacturer and have lead in them too. Scary!
I can't help but believe that all the hormones and antibiotics and preservatives in our food, along with the chemicals in our soaps and shampoos and cleaning products are contributing to the many "diseases" we face as a society. What do you think? I'm finding myself trying to live a more green and holistic lifestyle, and steering clear of artificial junk. I know that a lot of people roll their eyes at that type of thinking, and that's ok, but it feels right for me and my family.
PS: These are BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS DISHES from WALMART. You'd think such a respected household name would be more trustworthy!
