Weegy: There are no practical alternatives for them other than not to use them. For example, the lead-acid battery, despite all the nasty things said about it, is still a common battery in most cars.

Are you willing to take the hit? http:// /question/?qid=20071206224344AAjJRQ1 ] User: whay is heavy metals? why are they such an environmental problem? (More)
