      You actually have to ingest the stuff for it to do you harm. So long as you
      don't breathe it in as dust or gas, or eat it (inadvertently by sucking your
      loaded fingers or by chewing type), there's no risk. Same as lead loaded
      paint - it's not made for eating, and if kids didn't eat toys, there'd be no
      problem.

      There's no record of any printer dead from lead, and the problem of lead
      related poisoning was recognized many centuries ago.

      Be as careful and attentive as you would be walking across a road - look,
      think, pay attention. No worries!
