Term of The Day – Manganism
Manganism is the disease that occurs from inhaling toxic manganese molecules that are released during the welding process. Similar to Parkinson’s Disease, it is sometimes called Welder’s Parkinson’s. However, research has determined that manganism is known to reduce the dopamine levels in the brain. Reduced dopamine levels are not found in Parkinson’s Disease.
