What are the health hazards of platinum

Post  gill on Wed Jan 05, 2011 9:18 pm


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, short-term exposure to platinum salts may cause irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat and long-term exposure may cause both respiratory and skin allergies. The current OSHA standard is 2 microgram per cubic meter of air averaged over an 8-hour work shift.
As platinum is a catalyst in the manufacture of the silicone rubber and gel components of several types of medical implants (breast implants, joint replacement prosthetics, artificial lumbar discs, vascular access ports, etc.), the possibility that platinum could enter the body and cause adverse effects has merited study. The Food and Drug Administration and other institutions have reviewed the issue and found no evidence to suggest toxicity in vivo.
