Poisoning, precocious puberty! These 7 kinds of children's stationery are beautiful but extremely harmful, don't buy them indiscriminately

With the start of school soon, parents have to help their children prepare school supplies. Faced with a dazzling array of school supplies in stationery stores, children are always addicted to it, especially some fancy and fragrant stationery, which tempts many children. However, in these "good-looking" stationery, there may be hidden materials that endanger the safety of children, and some are even poisonous, you know?

I. What are the stationery with hidden dangers?

  • Scented eraser
I believe your child's stationery box will definitely be One or two scented, colorful erasers. Some manufacturers take advantage of children's natural liking for colorful things to add excessive "poison" - plasticizer to erasers, the purpose is to make the eraser soft enough and attract children's attention with aroma. CCTV News has reported that in a random inspection of 40 batches of erasers, more than 90% of them were detected with excessive plasticizers. Plasticizers may cause mild poisoning in children, and serious damage to children's liver and kidneys. In developing children, this substance can interfere with endocrine. Especially growing adolescents, long-term exposure, may lead to precocious puberty. And the softer, brightly colored, and scented eraser you have, the more likely you are to have excess plasticizers.
  • Scented ballpoint pen
In order to highlight the selling point of ballpoint pen writing more smoothly and with fragrance, They would add some benzene, aromatic hydrocarbons, etc. to it. Such a test result was exposed in the "News and Truth" program before: toluene and xylene were detected in the ballpoint pen. These two components are particularly harmful to the human body. If too much xylene is inhaled in a short period of time, symptoms such as dizziness, headache, nausea, and even convulsions and coma may occur in severe cases. Similarly, if the aromatic hydrocarbon components added to the ballpoint pen are excessive, it is easy to cause acute poisoning. Therefore, parents must not buy ballpoint pens with fragrance.
  • Scented Highlighter
Speaking of highlighter, this is a must-have tool for every child in class. However, in order to attract the attention of children, many businesses add fragrance to highlighters. According to experts, 10 kinds of toxic substances have been detected in some scented highlighters, including acrylonitrile, a highly toxic substance commonly found in chemical experiments! If a child uses this toxic highlighter for a long time, it will inevitably cause some adverse physiological reactions, such as nausea, headache, vomiting, etc.!
  • Plastic book cover
In the production process of some manufacturers, in order to make the plastic softer, they usually Add plasticizer. In 2019, the Shenzhen Consumer Council released the "2019 Student Bag Book Cover Comparison Test Report". Among the 30 evaluation bag book covers, 5 samples were detected with phthalate plasticizers exceeding the standard, among which the lowest detection value There are also (exceeding) 60 times. The side effects of plasticizers have been mentioned before, so I won’t repeat them too much. I remind parents again that when choosing book covers for their children, they must choose products from regular merchants and keep their eyes open.
  • Poor correction fluid
Correction fluid has always been a great help for careless children. However, this good helper was exposed as early as 2014 in which toluene and xylene exceeded the standard by 34 times. Although there have been relatively few manufacturers of correction fluids in recent years, they can still be seen in some stationery stores. Therefore, it is recommended that parents still help their children to get rid of the bad habit of using correction fluids. After all, the use of correction fluids is strictly prohibited in the middle and high school entrance examinations.
  • Excessive white paper
Jiangsu Satellite TV once reported a test where experts were checking student work When I was writing this book, I found that more than 70% of the workbooks were unqualified. At the same time, they also found that under the irradiation of ultraviolet light, a large blue was reflected, indicating that these papers contained too much fluorescent whitening agent. Although most fluorescent whitening agents are relatively non-toxic, if excessive fluorescent whitening agents are added to paper, it will inevitably cause certain damage to children's eyesight and skin. Therefore, when parents choose workbooks, try to choose workbooks with soft colors and yellowish colors.
  • Some pirated books
Speaking of pirated books, I believe some parents will feel that genuine and pirated books There is no difference. However, according to a test by the Society for Environmental Sciences, some cheap pirated books have lead content 100 times higher than that of similar genuine books! Once the lead in the human body exceeds the standard, it will have an impact on various systems throughout the body. Severe cases may also cause anemia, or affect the development of the nervous system. Therefore, it is recommended that parents try to buy genuine books as much as possible.

Second, how to choose stationery for children scientifically?

Here are 3 key steps to share with parents, so that parents can easily choose high-quality stationery suitable for their children. Step 1: Check the packaging of the stationery. Such as trademark, place of production, certificate of conformity, etc. It should be noted that if there is no relevant words such as "implementation standard GB" on the certificate, do not buy it lightly. In addition, as mentioned before, you can check whether the workbook is too white, whether the book is pirated, whether there is excessive formaldehyde in the accessories of the school bag or pencil case, etc. Step 2: Check the stationery for any odor or pungent odor. For qualified stationery, the smell should be very mild, or odorless. Some fragrant stationery, must not buy. Step 3: Pay attention to whether the surface of the stationery will be rough or scratched. If there is, it is recommended not to buy it, so as not to hurt the child. In addition, after each use of stationery, parents remember to emphasize that children wash their hands and do not do homework while eating.
