This week, New York magazine posted a cover story on the health benefits of titanium, which is a natural, non-toxic mineral found in the Earth’s crust.
But what do you think of the article?
Do you like titanium?
Is it worth the risk?
Are there any drawbacks?
Let us know in the comments.
More than a few women and girls in New York City have come forward to share stories of being subjected to the toxic chemicals found in titanium.
In a recent article for Glamour, former Olympic diver Lauren Stapleton detailed the effects of titanium’s toxic effects on her body: I’ve been dealing with it for more than a decade now.
I’ve been using titanium for everything from skin care to hair care.
I’m now trying to stop using it altogether, but I do use it for other things like nail polish.
And I still use it.
I’ve had a number of girlfriends and boyfriends tell me that their girlfriends or wives had started using titanium.
I think the only reason they haven’t done it is because they’ve never had a girlfriend or a wife who was on it, or they don’t have the resources to do it.
Titanium’s health benefits include fighting cancer and preventing bone fractures, and many women say that it helps keep them healthy, but some women have even reported symptoms like headaches, fatigue, nausea, and dizziness.
According to a 2014 study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, women who use titanium as a nail polish or hair color are three times more likely to experience a serious side effect: “As a female athlete, I’ve never experienced any serious side effects from using titanium, and I have not,” said Dr. Jodi Krawczyk, the chief medical officer of the American Academy of Dermatology.
“I don’t think it’s worth risking my health for this metal, but it does have health benefits for the body.”
In a similar study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatologists in March, researchers at the University of California, San Francisco found that titanium was effective in preventing osteoporosis, a form of bone damage that occurs when the bone grows too much and weakens the bones.
Although researchers aren’t sure how titanium actually protects bone, they believe it is a key component in preventing the formation of brittle bone, the structural part of bone.
This process is referred to as osteopenia, and it can cause the bones to break or become brittle.
When it comes to women who are taking up titanium, Krawczks says that there are several reasons why the mineral isn’t a good choice.
“It’s not good for women because it’s a high-density mineral, and women tend to be more likely than men to be aching and have pain when they’re applying it,” she said.
And, because it can be harmful to the skin, it’s not recommended for people with skin conditions, such as psoriasis.
As for the potential risks of using titanium?
“I have never heard of a single case of cancer, and none of the studies I have looked at show a link between it and any cancers,” Krawzys said.
But she adds that the metal is also safe for people who have been taking it for a long time, so if you’ve been taking titanium for years and want to give it up, there’s no reason to worry.
