Metal Poisoning is a Health ConcernAfter a study of 17,000 patients found that four out of every ten patients was suffering from malfunctions from hip replacements, metal on metal hip replacements have been banned. National Health Services have declared an official ban of the dangerous hip replacements and NHS facilities will not perform any such procedures involving metal hip implants.
