As a follow us on my last blog post I discovered this article. It largely reviews the same study as in the SBS article but then highlights that after the discover of dangerous levels of lead leaching into water "In 2014, the US government mandated a lead limit of 0.25 per cent in plumbing fittings.Taps in Australia and the UK are typically made of brass that contains lead at a level of about 2 to 4 per cent."
