Toxic substances are everywhere. They have invaded the air we breathe and the domestic space we live in. Food, packaging, textiles, cosmetics, paint… There is not a single area of everyday life that is free from suspected or confirmed poisons, carcinogens or endocrine disruptors.

To understand the reasons for our collective acceptance of this situation, the historian Judith Rainhorn has investigated white lead, which has been massively produced and used since the late 18th century to whiten paint that covers the walls of European cities. A poison for the workers directly exposed to it in their dusty workshops, lead pigment is today recognized as an environmental poison.

Like for asbestos, pesticides, phlalates or nanoparticles, social, industrial, scientific and political rationales have imposed their rhythms and requirements, making white lead a legal poison.
