Details for Lead

This material should be used if you are fairly certain that the object is fairly pure lead. It will be heavy. Be careful in handling lead and wash your hands well before touching food. But don't worry too much - blood tests on three long-serving FLOs have shown their lead levels to be no different from normal.
