I received this e-mail today and, to be honest, don’t have an answer.
I was hoping someone might be able to field this one. I don’t think
that the person who sent this to me is on Orchid, so please reply via
e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
"I am looking for some Or if anyone can pass me along to
the appropriate sources. My jewellery business is a small custom and
repair retail jeweller. I am having some discomfort in my lungs and a
metallic taste in my mouth. It has been difficult to pinpoint the
source that causing the problem. But I am quite sure the location is
in the workshop. I thought the problem was solved when I dicarded of
some Nitric Acid that was incorretly left in a bottle with a metal
top. It ate through the lid of the bottle. I thought the fumes were a
result of this. But I dicarded of the material a few weeks ago but the
problem still persists.
If anyone recognizes the symptoms or has any I ideas please pass them
