+ - Rise in allergies to cell phones->

Submitted by Meshach
Meshach (578918) writes "Report out of New York claiming that as people use electronic devices more and more persons with nickel allergies are reacting to their phones. Apparently about one-third of BlackBerry devices and 90 percent of flip phones contained nickel, and more than half of flip phones containing cobalt (the most common irritants). Conversely none of the iPhones or Androids studied tested positive for either metal. For those allergic to metals, symptoms range from dry-itchy patches on the face or ears to redness, blistering, lesions, and sometimes oozing."
