流行儿童玩物 “鬼口水” 安全吗?

Squishy, gungy, slimy slime. Around the world, children grab it and squeeze it. Every day globules are lobbed at weary adults. To the horror of parents, British TV programmes even tell kids how to make their own.

软绵绵、油腻腻、黏乎乎的黏液。在世界各地,孩子们都抓着它捏来捏去。每天,精疲力竭的家长们成了孩子们扔小黏球的对象。让他们感到可怕的是,一些英国电视节目甚至还教孩子们怎样制作自己的黏胶玩具。

But when it comes to buying the stuff, the advice from a British consumer organisation is to approach slime with caution - and not just because of the obvious reason - you know, its slime! Which? tested 11 popular slime products and found eight contained higher than recommended levels of borax, which is made of a chemical called boron. Boron is what makes the slime sticky.

但在购买这类玩具的时候,英国一消费者组织建议人们应谨慎对待,这并不只是因为最明显的原因:你知道,这种玩具可是黏液做成的!名为 “Which?” 的机构测试了十一种畅销的黏胶玩具,发现八种产品中的硼砂含量都高于推荐水平,硼砂由一种叫作“硼”的化学物质制成。硼是让胶状玩具变 “黏” 的原因。

But Nikki Stopford from Which? says it can make children ill. One product had more than four times the amount of boron the European Union says is safe. The eight products which didn't meet the standards were all purchased by Which? on Amazon, which has now removed them from sale.

但来自 “Which?” 的尼基·斯托普夫德说,该物质可能会让儿童生病。在受检测的十一种畅销产品中,有一种产品的硼含量达欧盟推荐安全值的四倍以上。“Which?” 已从亚马逊网站上购买了八种未达标产品的所有存货,这些产品现已停售。

But Science Communicator Dr Stuart Farrimund says while we should be aware of borax and boron, we shouldn't be hugely concerned.

但科学通讯员斯图尔特·法瑞蒙德博士说,尽管我们应认识到硼砂和硼的危害,但无需过于担心。
