CHRISTMAS DECORS BAD FOR HEALTH

0

PRETTY Christmas lights adorning homes, malls, streets and places of work and worship during the festive season may be harboring dangerous chemicals that can make people ill. The EcoWaste Coalition, an environmental watchdog, made this observation after analyzing 20 sets of imported holiday light strands and finding 16 of them exceeding the limit for lead in electrical and electronic products in the European Union (EU). The 16 samples had lead levels between 2,689 parts per million (ppm) to 32,500ppm, way above the limit of 1,000ppm under the EU Directive on Restriction of Hazardous Substances.
