Bon tout n'est pas "clear cut" mais avons nous besoin de tous ces métaux lourds? La réponse est clairement non. Alors faisons une petite revue des sources faciles à éliminer... Les peintures intérieures, les produits de vitrification des sols, les produits ménagers, les produits de beauté qui je le rappelle pénètrent facilement la peau, l'eau, les boissons industrielles voilà quelques pistes.
La source est intéressante c'est un député européen qui s'est lancé dans cette revue générale avec une commission. Pour autant comptons plus sur notre action individuelle que sur des législations couteuses et inefficaces. Les produits moins achetés ne sont plus renouvelés et cela va très très vite car les entreprises s'adaptent en temps réel...
