Cobalt Poisoning From A Stryker Hip Device
The chemical element cobalt is found in plants, water, rocks, and soil, making it naturally absorb in the body through the food and beverages we drink. The cobalt found in what we ingest are in such minuscule trace amounts that they are not toxic in our systems. However, when larger amounts are introduced to our bodies, cobalt can become poisonous and cause extreme harm to our organs as well as death. For those with malfunctioning metal hip implants that contain cobalt, this has become a very real and dangerous risk to their health.
