When you melt lead sulfate you get even more toxic gas than when melting pure fresh lead.

the sulfate is derived fromsulphuric acid. How many of you guys have ever been inside a battery factory? I have.

I used to melt my own lead for casting bullets. I stopped doing that when I saw what it could do to my lungs. I used to buy my batteries from a small independent battery factory. The owner died prematurely from lung disease.
