Very interesting Adam, love these facts that you find.
Guess what?I knew this one :)
It's good they changed it because I know kids like to put the pencil tips in their mouth.
Yeah, good thing they changed it!Have a great day,-Kati
I was happy to learn this when I was a kid and stepped on a pencil, which broke off in my foot. :)
we call it graphite pencil here ....
Can you imagine if it's still lead today? My kids chew their pencils like mad, so.....eeeeeek!
In Spain it´s always been a graphite pencil; I hadn´t heard about pencils with lead inside. Kisses:)
Glad no more lead, no need for lead poisoning
Good to know!
oh that's why they called them lead pencils.

That's probably good news for all those people who chew on the pencils.
But telling someone to "Get the graphite out" just doesn't sound right.
hahhaa on Stephen Hayes comment....:)My dad was a printer by trade and a man he worked with in the 40's stuck a pencil lead in his finger and he got so sick, he died from lead poisoning. Sure am thankful lead was replaced with graphite.
