Nickel Toxicity

The body needs some nickel in order to function properly, but too much nickel results in toxicity. Nickel is absorbed through different means - skin absorption, inhalation, and ingestion. Sources of nickel include foods, jewelry, prostheses, cigarette smoke, etc. Excess nickel in the body may cause dermatitis ("nickel itch"), respiratory problems, thyroid problems, and possible heart attack.
