For those new to this website:
Tamara Rubin is a federal-award-winning independent advocate for consumer goods safety and a documentary filmmaker. She is also a mother of Lead-poisoned children, her sons were acutely Lead-poisoned in 2005. Since 2009 Tamara has been using XRF testing (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.
For each article I write, there are category keyword tabs at the top of the post. Each of those words is a link to the category, and you can get to that category overview (to see all of the posts there) anytime by clicking on any of those words. I am working on writing summary posts for each category (like this one), so my readers will be able to see all of my posts written for some of the more popular categories on my website, easily (at a glance). This is my first attempt at this, so feedback is welcome! Please let me know if these summary posts are helpful. Thank you!
And without further ado… my posts discussing cups (of all kinds) for kids. Each numbered line below is a link to an article with photos and more information, including — in most posts — XRF test results for the item discussed:
Kids’ cups I have tested & reported on:
- The “Sippy Cup” category link
- The “Baby Bottle” category link
- The “Baby Cup” category link

As always, thank you for reading.
Thank you for being here, and thank you for sharing my work!
