Can we replace lead with a less dangerous chemical?

    Tungsten is another chemical element that has been suggested as a replacement for lead.  The company THC, Inc offers a variety of lead replacement products and capitalizes upon their proprietary technology to make it available in various forms.  This has not adopted widespread use due to the high cost of production.
