"Do Not Wear Your Ring When Handling Potentially Harmful Substances": Doctor Warns

Metals are beautiful, shiny elements that are excellent conductors of both heat and electricity.

Metals are also employed in the production of jewellery, which includes rings, earrings, and various types of chains, among other things. Gold, stainless steel, titanium, tungsten, silver, platinum, and palladium are some of the metals used to create these jewelries.

Although these jewelries, once they have been created, might be a sight to behold, they may also be quite deadly if not handled properly.

A doctor on Twitter, @firstdoctorr, has gone to his medical-related Twitter account to warn people about the dangers of wearing ring jewellery.

He expresses concern that rings might be hazardous if they come into contact with a car's battery.

He shared a photo of a finger that had been injured as a result of the Ring's interaction with a car battery on social media.


He made the following statement: "When a ring came into touch with a car battery, the owner's ring finger suffered serious chemical burns.

Please refrain from wearing your ring when working with potentially hazardous materials. Remove it for the sake of your health."
