Study: Cadmium Found in Cheap Jewelry Exceeds Safe Limit

Liquidlibrary/Thinkstock(ASHLAND, Ohio) -- Cadmium found in cheap pieces of jewelry could expose consumers to more than the amount considered to be safe if the chemical is ingested or makes contact with one's mouth, according to a new study released Friday.

Researchers at Ashland University measured the amount of cadmium present in 69 pieces of jewelry, imported primarily from China and sold for about $5 each. They found that some of the pieces, if placed in the mouth or swallowed, could release as much as 100 times the recommended maximum limit for cadmium.

The study, published in Environmental Health Perspectives, highlights the recent concern of the dangers of cadmium in children's jewelry, especially items imported from China.  Dangerous effects of ingested cadmium include kidney, bone, lung, and liver disease.
