Am I the only one who thinks that this new law for testing for lead in children's items is a good thing? I think it's about time we did something to stand up for our kids health. Lead is such a harmful thing to children especially, why should we NOT have higher standards and hold people to them? National surveys estimate that more than 3 million children 6 years of age and younger have lead poisoning. That information comes from http://www.idph.state.il.us/public/hb/hblead.htm. Lead poisoning can cause anything from learning disabilities, mental or physical handicaps, headaches, behavioral problems, coma and even death. I say let's start protecting our kids and try to find alternative ways to get SAFE inexpensive kids clothes. I'd rather spend more and be safe than spend less and be sorry. My opinion only, feel free to voice yours here.

Every one is entitled to their own opinion and I don't think that anybody should yell at you or bash you for yours. Respectfully everyone should say their opinion. My opinion is that there should be an inexpensive way to do this. I feel terrible for the people that can only afford to shop at the second hand stores. I do have a friend that does ONLY shop at second hand stores and she is very worried about this and just doesn't know what she is going to do....I do think this is a problem that just shouldn't be to begin with. Why isn't there stronger standards when the clothes and toys are being made?
