Introduction (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. Tamara’s work was featured in Consumer Reports Magazine in February of 2023.

The link to my film is on the home page of my website (LeadSafeMama.com/ TamaraRubin.com). It can also be found linked in the highlight bubbles on my Instagram page. It can also be found if you click the link in my Instagram bio — it is one of the buttons on the button menu for the site. The film is 92 minutes long and has music donated by The Who, Tom Waits, and Maia Sharp. Jon Fishman (drummer of Phish) is an executive producer of the project. The film has interviews with families of Lead poisoned children across the country as well as top experts in all fields related to the subject of childhood Lead poisoning (education, medicine, research science, construction, public policy, and more).
Thanks for taking the time to watch it — the link is a FREE preview screener of the full film (which is 92 minutes long) and will be available in this format (as an educational resource to families) until we can get some help with distribution and completion of some of the technical bits. I worked with an award-winning editor on the project (she has also done films with Leonardo DiCaprio, and others) and it is a real “movie” — not just some YouTube feature. I hope you will watch it, enjoy it, and learn something from it, too.
