Hi Everyone,

I have several questions about the element lithium. I ask the following questions for a research project I am currently working on.
I already have many good sources of background information on the lithium element itself, but I knew you guys would be an excellent "community resource", which is required for my essay.
Anyways, I would like to ask a few questions on Technology:
How is Lithium prepared for and used within products (such as medication)?
How does Lithium contribute to modern technology?
There are several Societal factors I would like to know as well:
What benefits or dangers does Lithium and its associated processes provide for society (the people who receive the medication)?

I understand these are a few questions with the expectancy of detailed answers, but I thank you so much for your time and effort put in to answer these.
