Crystal glass containers circulating on the market in two ways: lead-free crystal glass and lead crystal glass. The former general potassium, mostly for high-end crafts and a logo on the packaging; the latter lead, that is, in some supermarkets and stall common crystal glassware, lead oxide in an amount up to 24%.

In everyday life, if leaded glass artificial crystal made of full bloom wine, cola, honey and fruit juice containing acid and other acidic drinks or other acidic foods may lead ions form soluble lead salt with drinks or food was ingested, a serious health hazard. According to Professor Zhu Qishang speaking, lead to more free form or in the form of inorganic compounds through the blood-brain barrier, vascular rich central nervous system - the hippocampus and cerebral cortex harm. 

When the blood lead levels of 30 micrograms / liter, there will be generalized weakness, dizziness, headache, anemia, memory loss, muscle and joint pain and neurological toxicity, constipation, irregular menstruation and other female. Arteriosclerosis, peptic ulcers and retinal bleeding and other symptoms are also related to lead contamination. High blood lead levels, the patient has a metallic taste in the mouth, in patients with intravascular penetration of moisture between the brain matter will lead to cerebral edema and cerebral hemorrhage, demyelinating disease and other pathological changes.
