Abstract

In some occasions, corrosion has caused a component to fail or break and the result is injury or even in unusual cases death to human beings. Sometimes, the measures taken to prevent corrosion can cause problems. This paper presents examples where direct corrosion could be "dangerous" Three aspects are covered: the effect of small levels of metal ions in contact with skin; imbibation of metal ions; and the use of prosthetic devices in the body.
