About Lead Aprons
Lead aprons are often used in hospitals, dental offices and other settings where X-rays are taken. Lead aprons protect us from dangerous X-rays.
Lead aprons must not be disposed of as normal trash. The aprons are made with lead and can contaminate the soil in a landfill, posing a health hazard. Lead is very dangerous when handled incorrectly.
