6, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Fun, decorative drinking glasses may contain potentially harmful levels of lead and cadmium, a new British study says. University of Plymouth researchers analyzed 72 new and second-hand decorated drinking glasses, including tumblers, beer and wine glasses, and jars.
Possible dangers Stained glass workers sometimes spend hours on end breathing in dangerous lead particles, significantly increasing their risk of lead poisoning. Having leaded stained glass in your home is not an issue on its own. Leaded glass does become a potential health danger when it's either ingested or inhaled.
