Lead poisoning is very serious. Some of the symptoms can include abdominal pain, fatigue, headache, weakness and memory problems.
High levels of lead can also cause kidney and brain damage.
It is very important that we get the lead out of our lives. One source of lead may come from ceramics glazed by lead. This is why I never use the pretty teapots I have sitting on my dining room hutch for anything other than decoration. They are old, and I don’t know how they were made.
Until a good friend brought this issue to my attention, I didn’t realize how serious a problem I had in my house. I realized my family had been eating off of imported dinner plates. Even worse, these dishes had a cracked and deteriorating glaze. I don’t know where they came from, because they were old. Once I learned that some old and imported dinnerware may contain lead, I threw my plates in the trash, where they belonged.
ForLife Curve Teapot
The good news is that you don’t have to stop drinking tea that’s poured from pretty decorative teapots.
A much safer option is using a teapot that’s advertised as being made with out lead, such as the ForLife Curve teapot, which you can see below. This retro-style 24-ounce teapot is glazed with non-toxic, lead-free materials.
It’s very important that our teapots are lead free. That’s because we’re using them to steep our tea, and the hot liquid will remain in contact with the material for the duration of our tea drinking.
