My wife and I received a great deal of fiestaware for our wedding. Since
then, we have heard of the lead and uranium oxide content of "vintage"
fiestaware (before 1986 they say). There is a great deal of heresay about
this (all of it, by sellers of the stuff) that downgrades the danger of
either lead or uranium.
As a physician (and in addition, my wife is pregnant), I am concerned about
the potential danger of the fiestaware.
Is anyone aware of any research that has been done regarding either lead or
uranium? I am particularly interested in serum lead levels done in humans
who regularly use fiestaware to eat?
