Two growing health concerns: fast food and lead-based paint

According to the medical journal Pediatrics, since 1970 the consumption of fast food among young people of ages 4 to 19 has increased fivefold. Now approximately one third of US children eat fast food every day. An occasional pizza is a nice treat but should not be the staple of a young person’s diet.

Just as Superman didn’t like lead because he couldn’t see through it with his X-ray vision, BFS doesn’t like lead either, and we refuse to use lead-based paint in our products. We say this because it has come to our attention that much of the exercise equipment manufactured in China is made with lead-based paint. The harmful effects of lead-based paint are widely documented, which is why BFS will not cut corners and use it in our products.
