Yesterday was a rollercoaster…each time my work goes viral, it presents a new swirl of chaos and more interviews to do (in 20 hours from 11/8 to 11/9 alone: four interviews, two radio and two television – both national and local)!
Below is a link to the story on CBS This Morning from Thursday, 11/8/2017. Since that aired, pretty much every news outlet across the country seems to have picked it up, and I guess my interview has also been featured in an NPR story (which I have not yet been able to find a link to! Please share it if you have it!)
Carissa and I had a blast with all of the interviews! I will post more of them here shortly too!
As always, if you appreciate what I do and would like to support my advocacy work [including my independent consumer goods testing – the work I do that served as the foundation for this national “breaking story”], please consider contributing via my Chip-In link or via GoFundMe. Thank you; I would not be able to do what I do without the support of all of you – my friends, fans and followers!

For those new to this website:
Tamara Rubin is a multiple-Federal-award-winning independent advocate for childhood Lead poisoning prevention and consumer goods safety, and a documentary filmmaker. She is also a mother of Lead-poisoned children (two of her sons were acutely Lead-poisoned in 2005). Since 2009, Tamara has been using XRF technology (a scientific method used by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission) to test consumer goods for toxicants (specifically heavy metals — including Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, Antimony, and Arsenic). All test results reported on this website are science-based, accurate, and replicable. Items are tested multiple times to confirm the test results for each component tested. Tamara’s work was featured in Consumer Reports Magazine in February of 2023 (March 2023 print edition).
