WHAT IS NICKEL AND WHY IS IT IN MY WATER?
Nickel is a chemical element that is abundant on Earth, particularly in the iron/nickel core of the planet. Many alloys and goods, including as stainless steel, ceramic paint, jewellery, kitchen ware, batteries, textiles, and coins, include it. Power stations, metal manufacturers, and trash incinerators all discharge nickel into the environment. It's also found in fertilizers, and farm runoff contaminates groundwater. Nickel may be recycled up to 60% of the time. Nickel is found in the human body in amounts of roughly 10 mg.
Nickel is found in nature in combination with other elements in the earth's crust. It can be found in many types of soil and is emitted by volcanoes. Nickel is the 24th most common element on the planet. It is mostly found in the environment as oxides or sulphides when mixed with oxygen or sulphur. Nickel can also be found in meteorites and lumps of minerals called sea bottom nodules on the ocean floor. Nickel accounts about 6% of the earth's core. Nickel is emitted into the atmosphere by enterprises that create or use nickel, nickel alloys, or nickel compounds, as well as through nickel mining. Nickel may also be discharged in waste water from these industries. Oil-burning power stations, coal-burning power plants, and waste incinerators, all emit nickel into the environment.
HOW CAN NICKEL ENTER AND LEAVE MY BODY?
When you breathe nickel-containing air, drink nickel-containing water or consume nickel-containing food, or come into contact with nickel on your skin, nickel can enter your body. When you breathe nickel-contaminated air, the amount of nickel that reaches your lungs and enters your blood is determined by the size of the nickel particles. The particles will stay in your nose if they are big. Small particles can get deep into your lungs if they're small enough. When nickel particles dissolve easily in water, more nickel is taken from your lungs into your body. Nickel can stay in your lungs for a long period if the particles don't dissolve quickly in water. Some nickel particles can leave mucus in your lungs, which you can spit out or ingest. If you consume nickel-containing water, more nickel will enter your body through your stomach and intestines.The nickel that enters your bloodstream is excreted in your urine. After you eat nickel, most of it goes into your stool, and the small amount that gets into your blood goes into your urine.
WHAT ARE THE HEALTH EFFECTS OF NICKEL EXPOSURE?
Nickel is required in the diets of many organisms, but high levels can be cancerous and poisonous. Nickel allergies are more common in women than in men. Contact with the skin might result in dermatitis.Nickel inhalation poses the greatest danger of developing health issues because it is extremely carcinogenic.
People who breathe dust containing particular nickel compounds while working in nickel refineries or nickel processing plants have experienced the most extreme negative health effects from nickel exposure, including chronic bronchitis, impaired lung function, and lung and nasal sinus cancer. Nickel levels were substantially greater in these workplaces than in the surrounding environment.
