Why is graphite dangerous?
Since 2022, Russia-Ukraine geopolitical conflicts have intensified, and global energy prices have risen sharply, with international natural gas prices hitting historic highs. As the most important transitional energy source in the transition from fossil energy to non-fossil energy, the share of natural gas in primary energy has increased from 14.6% in 1965 to 24.7% in 2020. The global gas price indices showed a unilateral downward trend from 2018, bottomed out in 2020, and remained low for a long time. However, since July 2020, the global gas prices have gradually fluctuated upward, and the impact of geopolitical events made the Dutch TTF gas price even hit record highs repeatedly.
An analyst of a securities company believes that the core catalyst of this round of global gas market lies in the lack of investment in upstream oil and gas resources caused by long-term low prices. Since 2020, although the epidemic has led to a decline in demand, the decline in supply has been faster, resulting in a large inventory consumption. In 2021, demand will recover faster than supply (the supply-side is less sensitive to prices, which will be reflected in investment).
As the world's two largest gas graphite dangerous are also expected to change significantly.
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.
