Low cost jewelry can cause toxicant effects

Low cost jewelry contains thousands of times more cadmium than Health research says is safe for children. 

Cadmium is a soft bluish-white metal.Cadmium is also a known carcinogen, which can lead to kidney failure, bone loss and can cause dilemmas  in those who are chronically manifested over time. 

Whereas there are still no known risks for people who wear contaminated jewelry.Despite, swallowing or chewing a piece of jewelry containing high concentrations of the toxic metal could allow it to bleed into the body. 

Researchers from University of Toronto tested the jewelry and found that many items contained between 15 and 7,000 times for cadmium an amount that is not safe for children. 


A shiny blue metal pendant necklace contains nearly 100 percent cadmium, pretty close to pure cadmium.Not only just cadmium, Lead is also present in some jewelry.It can also build up in the body and affect the nervous system, and can lead to learning and behavioral problems in children.
