For religious and cultural reasons, Hindus use sindoor, a powder that has been linked to childhood lead poisoning when unintentionally swallowed.
Hindus use the orange or red powder sindoor for religious and cultural rituals. By wearing sindoor in a particular area of their hair, married ladies can announce their marital status and express their desire for their spouses to enjoy long lives.
Women may also apply sindoor as a dot (bindi) on their forehead for cosmetic or religious reasons, in addition to males or kids.
Lead tetroxide may be added by the manufacturer to give red lead its distinctive red colour. Behavioural issues and cognitive impairments in children can be caused by lead exposure, among other health effects;
The Rutgers University Trace Element and Mineral Research Laboratory checked for lead in samples of sindoor. Samples were considered positive for lead content if they had 1.0 micrograms or more of lead per gramme.
With an electrothermally heated graphite atomizer, which is detailed in more detail elsewhere, we used atomic absorption spectrophotometry.
Samples were taken twice, with a lower limit of detection of 0.004 micrograms per gramme of lead.
