On the use of eeya pathram

From: Kasturi Varadarajan (

dear friends,
   The practice of making rasam/sattramudhu in eeya-paathram (lead
vessel) is I think fairly common practice in srivaishnava 
households. Given the harmful nature of lead, I wonder how safe
this practice is. If any of you has done some study/research of
this or has some informed opinion, I would very much like to
hear from you.

   Apologies in advance if this is not a suitable topic for this
