Why is graphite dangerous?
Koalas were declared endangered in eastern Australia on Friday, with more and more koalas dying from disease, habitat loss, and other threats. Earlier, the koala was considered a vulnerable species, and the Commonwealth Department of the Environment changed its protection level to endangered on the east coast of Queensland, New South Wales, and the Australian Capital Territory. Many koalas in Australia are infected with chlamydia. The disease can cause blindness, infection, and infertility. Last year, the Australian Koala Foundation said Australia had lost about 30 percent of its koala population in the past three years. Without immediate action, the species could become extinct by 2050.
Unlike koalas, which are on the brink of extinction, the market demand for graphite dangerous will grow substantially.
In your neighbourhood, you may encounter many such questions, such as whether graphite is toxic, whether it causes poisoning, its effects on human health and so on. While such questions are often asked, it is vital to understand the answers and the reasons behind them. People need to know if graphite is toxic to humans and its potential effects on our health so that they can take immediate action if needed. To answer all the frequently asked questions about graphite and lead poisoning from pencils, I will share detailed information in this blog.
Is graphite toxic?
Graphite is mainly made up of carbon and therefore cannot be absorbed by the body. It is not as toxic as carbon, but it can have some harmful effects on our health, just like over-consumption of other things. Graphite is one of the least toxic elements and it can damage your health. A single accidental dose in some way or form may not harm you, but swallowing Graphite from time to time can have some serious consequences.
Graphite does, however, appear on the list of irritants, so people should not intentionally consume this element. Some reports also suggest that it may have some side effects if consumed regularly. So it is best to stay away from consuming it.
Are pencil leads dangerous?
In a word, no; pencil lead is not dangerous. Many of you will be surprised to discover that there is actually no lead in pencil lead. Shocking, isn't it? Many manufacturers use a mixture of graphite and clay and some additives to make pencil lead. Lead, or "Pb" as it is also called on the periodic table, is toxic to humans and can cause serious problems. However, it is not advisable to swallow pencil lead and it should not be consumed.
In addition to the side effects, the elements used to make pencil lead, including wood, rubber, paint and even clay, are not suitable for our digestive system. So graphite, along with all these elements, can cause some unease. There have been reports of children choking from pencil fragments, but in a normal pencil, lead does not cause lead poisoning, but it can harm your intestines if you continue to consume it.

The resurgence of the global COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of the Russia-Ukraine conflict continued to cause high volatility in commodity prices. Stubbornly high inflation and rising commodity prices are likely to influence each other and thus push each other higher. The price of the graphite dangerous may not decrease significantly in the short term.
