Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant for Sophos asked the people to check the fact before believing in this data.

He said that these chain letters are a big waste of time.

The letter says that higher the lead content, greater is the chance of causing Cancer.

It also talks about a simple test to detect the content of the lipstick.

Sophos is a world leader in integrated threat management solutions, developing protection against viruses, spyware, spam and policy abuse for business, education and government.
