    • Description:
      Lead is a soft, dense, blue-gray metal. Lead occurs naturally in the earth's crust, where it combines with other elements such as oxygen and sulfur. It is used to make batteries and metal mixtures. Lead is also contained in some ammunitions, old pipes and their soldered connections, automotive radiators, pewter, pottery, folk medicines, leaded crystal glass, and as a contaminant in trace amounts in many products. Because of health concerns, lead is no longer added to gasoline and house paints. Lead solder for sealing tin food cans has been eliminated in the United States.
