More Interesting Facts!
In the U.S. at least 10% of the female population and at least 1% of the male population suffer from nickel allergy today. One easy way of getting nickel allergy is by a simple ear, eyebrow, lip, or bellybutton piercing. This is because they use a cheap jewelery made with nickel alloys, then causing infections around the piercing. Another way of getting it is by an object we use every day, our cell phones. A recent study from Stony Brook University showed us that cell phones in particular could be causing symptoms of nickel allergy because of the great amount of nickel in it. WOW I bet you didn't know that!
