Firstly, all cars have batteries. The lithium ion batteries used in electric cars are less damaging than the lead or nickel-metal based ones in traditional cars. There is an issue with all cars, but lithium ion batteries can be recycled. It just takes planning, but you're right, there's no getting around the fact that we generate waste that has to be disposed of somehow. As for the 'health risks' ... this is typical BS. If you're worried about risks then don't drive at all - you're far more likely to die in a road accident than from the compounds inside a sealed battery. If you're *that* worried then ask yourself why lead was removed from petrol and yet still sits inside a lot of car batteries? Your existing battery is toxic. So is the brake and steering fluid. Oh and the oil isn't good for you either. Neither is the antifreeze you might have in the coolant. And the cigarette lighter ... that's a spontaneous combustion waiting to happen ... but you get the point!
