Contaminants in human nail dust: an occupational hazard in podiatry? Paul D Tinley, Karen Eddy and Peter Collier Journal of Foot and Ankle Research 2014, 7:15 doi:10.1186/1757-1146-7-15 Quote: Background There has been limited literature indicating that podiatrists’ health may be at risk from exposure to human nail dust.
