Lead is really useful when you add it to things like paint and gasoline. Problem is, it’s also poisonous.

It's a great thing that lead isn't killing our children anymore. Neuroblastoma is still killing lots of kids and it's trying to kill mine. Please do an episode on neuroblastoma and shout out to Alexa's channel https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCxQFKPfODKy1RzYPIccVoEQ Thank you for your consideration.

So... what about inhaling that vapour when you solder some components onto a PCB? IS that the lead, or the flux? Just asking for a friend.... Because I turned out normal myself >:-D

So lead might be the reason why Caligula was such a nutjob?
Ciarrai B (7 месяцев назад)
Wow I never thought about the fact that petrol (fuel) was called unleaded because it doesn’t contain lead. All our petrol in Australia is unleaded so it never occurred to me there could be leaded petrol. Lol, learn something new every day!
Max Bainrot (7 месяцев назад)
lead also was used in solder. well until EU introduced RoHS which meant the introduction of lead free solder. Fun fact, often the flux used in soldering is actually far more harmful then the lead (though citation needed)
Bunny Girl2448 (7 месяцев назад)
Artists in the United States still use lead white in their oil paintings. They use it despite knowing the damage because of its unique properties and look that can’t be duplicated. So some thing it’s worth the risk. You can find it today in fine art supply stores labeled “silver white” or “crackle white”

What about bullets? I'm not an expert, but I believe some use lead and some use lighter metals. I mean obviously if used in war then lead probably helps more than anything, but what about hunting? Wouldn't that make the animal dangerous to eat?
Oskar Skog (9 месяцев назад)
The metal needs to be somewhat dense, a bullet made of a lighter metal would be less deadly. Solid pieces of lead aren't too bad as it is quite unreactive. And without blood circulation, the very tiny amount of lead ions that have been dissolved won't travel far from the fragments of the bullet, which you wouldn't want to eat for other reasons as well.

So, there's a town called sweetwater... And lead makes water sweet... UMMMMMM

Lead causes "acquired neuroporphyria". Increased δ-Aminolevulinic levels which block GABA receptors are a response to lead poisoning. Lead paint is still permitted for a variety of uses, art supplies, lines on the road, marina. Leaded gasoline is still for sale as "racing fuel". Propeller airplanes are still fueled with leaded avgas. Crop dusting from prop planes spread lead dust on the soil that is used to grow food.
Max Murphy (10 месяцев назад)
left out the fact that most general aviation aircraft still uses leaded gasoline called 100 Low Lead

I don't care what anyone says! lead is amazing I've been working with it in paint and solder for ages you just don't lick your hands or the paint and it's fine.

But lead is still used in bullets though? every time I get shot I'm getting lead poising
Oskar Skog (9 месяцев назад)
Not really. If you only get shot once every couple of months or so, and get the bullets removed, you should be fine. I'd be more concerned about tissue damage and bleeding.

"""Lucifer Curves" tells the stranger-than-fiction true story of how preschool lead poisoning has caused crime waves across centuries and around the world. Lead poisoning also explains USA racial disparities in education, abortion and unwed birth rates, and arrest and incarceration rates. Rick Nevin's peer-reviewed research on this subject has been widely reported by the global news media. In Lucifer Curves, Nevin puts all of the pieces together, including figures showing how lead exposure trends have accurately predicted ongoing crime trends in the USA, Canada, Britain, Australia, and New Zealand. Moreover, Lucifer Curves presents new pieces of this puzzle, showing how lead poisoning can explain the "dawn to dusk of delinquency", and historic trends in stature known as the "antebellum puzzle". Other figures show that lead poisoning has also predicted USA trends in education and unwed teen pregnancy. Nevin presents clear evidence that lead poisoning has caused these societal trends, based on causation indicators that the World Health Organization has described as a “mainstay of epidemiological textbooks and data interpretation”. Nevin presents this evidence in terms accessible to anyone with a curious mind. He also explains how preschool lead exposure still poses an important public health risk, how we can economically eliminate the greatest source of that risk, and how the legacy of lead poisoning has profound implications for current policy debates over criminal justice reform and the death penalty."

why does the bucket of paint i saw once say it has lead in it, and it was bould in the 2010s.

Moderator forgot to say that tetraethyl lead's removal from the marketplace coincided quite exactly with the arrival of the miracle-cure for most photochemical smog: the platinum-plated catalytic converter. Yup, lead is ABSOLUTELY toxic to that platinum catalyst. While there was an overlap in the marketplace, a physical impediment was invented to prevent "mis-fueling." That is, the fueling input ports on cars were made smaller, on catalyst-equipped cars, to prevent mindless car owners from using the older (large nozzle) pumps (associated with leaded gasoline) to pump gasoline into their car's "gas" tanks.

I'm surprised you didn't mention Plumbous. The very reason the symbol for lead is Pb comes from Plumbous, because the romans used it for plumbing...hence the name plumbing.

Could lead, when mixed with another chemical, become safe to use? Kind of like how Florine is dangerous in its raw form, but it's used safely in things like toothpaste?

If you want to kill someone give them food sweetened with lead sugar
SaltiestRaccoon (1 год назад)
This is not all entirely accurate. Lead is not very bioavailable. It's not 'easily absorbed into the blood.' Certain FORMS of lead, however, are more easily absorbed, and unfortunately these lead salts are the same ones that taste sweet. Elemental lead does not taste sweet and is not nearly as toxic. I like to wash my hands after soldering, connecting lead sinkers or working with lead miniatures just to be on the safe side, but I think it's important people don't freak out unreasonably about lead products. If you're not actively chewing on them or eating them... you're probably going to be fine. Again, lead salts are a different story.

can I have a lick on lead? will I die?
Oskar Skog (9 месяцев назад)
Yes, no. I have licked Sn60 Pb39 Cu1 with flux core and I'm still alive. I generally wash my hands after soldering and try not to contaminate my nearby coffee. I also don't eat solid metal, it hurts my teeth for some reason and it's also completely pointless.

Not ALL gas stations, hank... Leaded fuel is still used in racing applications, and in aviation. I can get leaded gas at the pump in several places. Or I could, if I had anything that was exotic enough to require it. Like a racing car, or an airplane.
Jack Eggebrecht (1 год назад)
So, now I wonder how long it might take for gas stations to completely stop using the "Unleaded" designation because it becomes so redundant and obvious that no one even thinks of lead in gasoline anymore.
Richard Samuelson (1 год назад)
It's sweet! It's an effective preservative! Paints containing it are superior to others! ...Why does it have to be so dangerous...?

If you use something leaded that land inside your mouth or *any other body part* your probably doing it wrong. Haha

how can people survive if they get shot and the lead bullet doesnt get removed, or do they not survive and i just dont know about it?

Solid metallic lead is not very reactive and will take quite a long time to dissolve in your body. I wouldn't recommend leaving bullets in your body for unnecessarily long times however.
