Where are the 'bad roots' of inferior stationery?
Some scented pens, erasers, and scented book paper are made of chemical materials such as polyvinyl chloride resin plastics and industrial fragrances, which are harmful to the human body. The highlighter contains a large amount of fluorescent agent. Long-term use will seriously affect the child's vision. The toxicity will also accumulate in the liver or other important organs and become a potential carcinogen. Inferior watercolor pens and crayons use unqualified wax and excessive pigments.

Long-term use will seriously affect the child's vision. The toxicity will also accumulate in the liver or other important organs and become a potential carcinogen. Inferior watercolor pens and crayons use substandard wax and excessive paint. After the child bites and sucks unconsciously, harmful substances will be transferred to the child's body. In addition, long-term exposure to heavy metals in pigments will affect the nervous system, resulting in decreased memory and intelligence. What is worrying is that our country does not yet have a formal law on the safety of student stationery. Therefore, our country's top priority is to formulate a relevant law and regulation to regulate the gaps in the safety of stationery. Foreign countries have established very strict production standards for stationery used by children, and quality inspectors will regularly monitor their toxicity. However, in China, no one is in charge of the safety and source of materials for small commodities such as highlighters and correction fluids that were not available in the past. The harm caused by inferior stationery to students may not be visible in the short term, but in the long run, it will endanger health. The state should promulgate relevant laws and regulations as soon as possible to manage the student stationery market. According to the person in charge of the National Stationery Testing Center, the China National Light Industry Council has formulated special management regulations for correction fluids in accordance with market needs, and they will be implemented on June 1 this year. Among them, most of the provisions are recommended, but the content of harmful substances in the correction fluid is mandatory: the organic solvent benzene content in the correction fluid should not exceed 10 mg per kilogram, and it must not contain chlorinated hydrocarbons. Experts emphasize that it is best to go to regular stores to buy correction fluid. If the correction fluid is improperly applied to the skin, it should be washed with soap immediately. Parents should observe their children's reactions after touching the stationery. If they find that their children have symptoms such as sore throat and itchy eyes, they should seek medical advice promptly.
