LEAD EXPOSURE POSES SERIOUS HEALTH HAZARD

 

CAUTION: Shell casings almost always have lead residue on them. Lead exposure is a serious health hazard, especially to children. Lead exposure can lead to serious injury and even death. Lead exposure can occur not only via the direct handling of shell casings or the direct ingestion of lead dust or particulate that becomes airborne during activities involving shell casings, but also in many other ways—some of which are indirect and not obvious. For a non-exclusive list of examples in which you and others might become exposed to lead as a result of your activities involving the Product, see the websites below. Therefore, appropriate precautions must be taken when handling, storing, using (including reloading and shooting), selling, shipping, disposing, and taking any other activity involving the Product (any such matter, a “Product Activity”).

 

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service (“HHS”) notes, “Lead can affect almost every organ and system in your body. The main target for lead toxicity is the nervous system, both in adults and children. Long term exposure of adults can result in decreased performance in some tests that measure functions of the nervous system. It may also cause weakness in fingers, wrists, or ankles.  Lead exposure also causes small increases in blood pressure, particularly in middle-aged and older people and can cause anemia. Exposure to high lead levels can severely damage the brain and kidneys in adults or children and ultimately cause death. In pregnant women, high levels of exposure to lead may cause miscarriage. High level exposure in men can damage the organs responsible for sperm production.” 

 

ToxFAQs for Lead, HSS Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, Division of Toxicology and Environmental Medicine (August 2007).

 

The California Department of Public Health’s Occupational Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (“Cal OLPPP”) cites recent studies as showing that even “low levels of lead in adults can:

 

  • increase blood pressure — may increase your chances of having a heart attack or stroke.
  • decrease brain function — making it more difficult to think, learn, and remember.
  • decrease kidney function — making it more difficult to get rid of toxic waste products through your urine.
  • harm the physical and mental development of your baby before it’s born.
  • increase chances of having a miscarriage.
