The main substances contained in batteries:

Lead, one of the most harmful metals. He and his compounds are toxic, in acute poisoning, you will experience severe pain in the abdomen and joints. It tends to accumulate in the kidneys and bones, gradually destroying them.

Cadmium, another toxic metal. Also, like lead is very toxic. When it is poisoned, vomiting and convulsions are possible, it also provokes the development of cancer.

Mercury, about her and say nothing. All since childhood scared of this substance when they put a thermometer. I think it is not necessary to explain that her couples strongly influence the brain, liver, kidneys and nervous system.
