The only source of information you should be consulting is a specialist dermatologist on referral from your GP.
Self-serve information has been shown to cause people anxiety and drive them poorly informed spurious conclusions, all because they are thinking the knowledge they trawl for and gain from the internet is better than a 20 minute consultation with a Doctor. It's not. This is a major problem being seen by Doctors the world over, "self-serve", including those who delve into PubMed, Medscale and university research journals. I note that the author of the article in Cheeseslave says "I am not a Doctor".... yet speculates wildly in all directions and seeks discourse. That discourse is speculative, conjectural, indirect and in a lot of places, heresay, towing the line of of populist opinion rather than proven science.
1. i'm not self diagnosing, given that i don't have any cherry angiomas.
2. I was asking a simple yes or no question, a yes, meriting more of an explanation, not a tangent of the above point... sorry, but i didn't want an argument about 'to self diagnose or not'.
3. 'correllation' is noted between bromine poisoning and angiomas... note that it does not say causation. I won't get a copy of the study, given that's it $32.
4*. Set/setting (genes/environment) rule you're illnesses. It used to be that given your geography dictated what you ate. With mass globalization underway, this is less the case around the world. Note, the number of cancer rates going up in places, where this was such a small percentage before.
what i was trying to get at with this is that, yes, some are predisposed (genetically) to be more sensitive, physically to our environment. It might be that those who work in direct (somewhat) contact to chemicals, are more likely to show a sign of it.
Also note that the most probable cause of 'bromide toxicity' is probably BROMATED FLOUR, and not darkroom chemicals... just thought i would ask though < a known carcinogen for mice (as far as the study went), banned in several countries, yet still used, although not as widespread... almost as bad as fluoride in water...
What's weird is that if you look it up, it says that CA are not a known sign of internal malignancy, yet we know that everything has a cause. The body reacting with CA, i'm sure is not because it's extremely healthy, but instead a warning sign, like most bodily reactions.
Ok, here is a possible answer to your question! If bromide can be absorbed through the skin, then swimming in the ocean would be virtually fatal due to bromide poisoning. (Oh, chloride and iodide as well, but the iodide is so low it wouldn't matter). So, don't swim in the ocean.
And, when you process film or paper, wear protective gloves like I do!
Actually swimming in the ocean is a great thing for the body as denoted in the study below...
and here's the last i've read
i'm sorry for veering so off topic, and asking such a general question, from a 'quack' website. although most of people don't believe in detoxing, given the pharmaceutical imposition in our medical economic sector, and their final word in all diseases, i find it hard to believe that given the prevalence of cherry angiomas, no one has done any real study to the real cause behind them. If one thing is for sure, it's that our body has it's own way of alarming of us of problems to come. why aren't they studied? - "given that they only rarely indicate internal malignancy." yeah, i don't think so, common sense says otherwise.
What does any of this have to do with common sense?
And cause and effect is often not so obvious... there's a reason we have tools like science.
"Common sense" is by definition unqualified as a basis for a medical diagnosis. There's a reason most people aren't doctors: the knowledge required is UNcommon.
Common sense says the government can't spend more money than it makes.
Common sense says liquid helium shouldn't climb out of open containers.
Common sense says you should throw water on a fire on your stove.
And in all of those cases, common sense is wrong.
