  QUESTION: When did lead stop being used to make toothpaste tubes? 14 Sep 2005, Illinois USA

When did lead stop being used to make toothpaste tubes?

ANSWER: 14 Sep 2005

Dear David,

despite my enquiries to the Lead Development Association (see below), I'm afraid I don't have an answer yet to your question so I thought I'd better let you know that I'm on it! Have you perchance found the answer elsewhere?

May I know the reason for your interest in this historical fact?

Regards
Elizabeth O'Brien

Dear Maura,

I can't even think of who else to ask so I wondered if you could answer my query of August 15 (see above)?

Dear Maura,

I have received the enquiry in the subject line from an inquirer in the United States and I really hope you can answer the question. If you could email the answer to me, I will then be able to forward it to the inquirer but will also publish it on our website because invariably these types of questions interest more than one person.

Thanking you
Yours Sincerely
Elizabeth O'Brien
