Are you a bad parent is your child at risk of slapping or hurting themselves? If I slapped your kid would you slap me back. Most of you answered that no you are not a bad parent and either you would defend your kid or at least get them out of harms way. So why are you letting your child be slapped so many times a day and why are you not defending or a the very least protecting your child. Here are 9 ways our children are being slapped around:
Mercury – Mercury and most of its compounds are extremely toxic and are generally handled with care; in cases of spills involving mercury (such as from certain thermometers or fluorescent light bulbs) specific cleaning procedures are used to avoid toxic exposure. Essentially, it is recommended to physically merge smaller droplets on hard surfaces, combining them into a single larger pool for easier removal by using an eyedropper, or by pushing it into a disposable container. Vacuum cleaners and brooms should not be used because they cause greater dispersal of the mercury. Afterwards, sulfur powder, zinc powder, or some other element that readily forms an amalgam (alloy) with mercury (e.g. finely-divided Cu or Bi) at ordinary temperatures is sprinkled over the area and subsequently collected and properly disposed of. Cleaning porous surfaces and clothing is not effective at removing all traces of mercury and it is therefore advised to discard these kinds of items should they be exposed to a mercury spill.
Mercury can be inhaled and absorbed through the skin and mucous membranes, so containers of mercury are securely sealed to avoid spills and evaporation. Heating of mercury, or compounds of mercury that may decompose when heated, is always carried out with adequate ventilation in order to avoid exposure to mercury vapor. The most toxic forms of mercury are its organic compounds, such as dimethylmercury and methylmercury. However, inorganic compounds, such as cinnabar are also highly toxic by ingestion or inhalation of the dust. Mercury can cause both chronic and acute poisoning. (Source – wikipedia.org)

So how long are we going to continue letting our children be slapped around? If it was me doing it you would do something about it how is this any different. There is a documentary movie called Food Matters that goes into details about what is going on with all of the above. The only ways I know to view this documentary film is by the site or by watching on Netflix. Are you a bad parent only if you read and watch all this stuff and do absolutely nothing about it? Only you can answer that question my hope is that you look further into all this information and figure out the truth.
