My husband and I are replacing our everyday dinnerware. I've been reading about lead and cadmium in dinnerware that is painted and/or glazed. Lead and cadmium are the heavy metals that were tested the highest in my blood.
I read that stoneware and porcelain that is stated as "lead and cadmium-free" -- even the ones that are all white, still have traces of the metals in them. The article suggested glassware and gave a particular brand to buy. The glassware is tempered glass. I've learned that glass that is tempered will be less likely to break because it's been laminated with plastic. OK... is the plastic alright.
I am getting a bit lost with all of this new information and wondered if there is someone who can help me sift through this and help us decide on the most healthy dinnerware.
Also, I know that stainless steel silverware -- well -- is metal. What are the best utensils to buy for your health -- or is this a whole other discussion?
