Holly Jahangiri's most recent blog entry, on Do I Have to Spell It Out, gives the results of her latest research into the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act.
One point she brings out is "RR Donnelley, a leading full-service provider of print and related services around the globe, has established a portal site at www.rrd.com/cpsia that provides evidence from extensive testing showing that the total amount of lead contained in books, generally, would be "none" or less than the most stringent lead limits imposed by the Act. That includes books printed in China."
I advise everyone, whether a believer or not about the problem we face, to read Holly's post. It won't hurt to allow a few facts to mess with our opinions; truly it won't. That's what education does, as my former students so often discovered.
