I've been casting and scrounging lead since I was about 9 or 10 yrs. old. I never entertained the dangers of lead back then as I do now and I'm 57 with no ill effects.
Is it dangerous toxic stuff ?, yep......it can be if not addressed properly. As I got older I started to read more on it and made changes in the way I handled it or breathed while around it when molten. I knew if I was going to continue doing what I did with it, I'd have to make changes. I installed a stove hood w/fan and never ate or smoked around the stuff.......washed my hands frequently as well......Thank God all is well.
I've had a decent supply of pure lead from various sources so I've never scrapped batteries, but I know some who have with no ill effects.......obviously they are cautious about it.....
To me I can make more money by turning them in for recycling.......more money for components :)
