The Effect Of Gel Pen Ink When Inhaled?
Good evening, I want to ask, if you use a gel-ink pen to keep track of your assignments, what is the danger when writing accidentally inhale air vapor from the pen? thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
There are various types of pen ink and the materials used in the manufacture of ink pens also vary (of course, it can vary on each brand of pen). In developed countries there are regulations to regulate materials that can be used in the manufacture of pen ink so that pens are safe enough to be used (as long as they are used properly). In developing countries, it is not clear whether or not such regulations already exist. However, as long as you only inhale the ink odor accidentally (when you write it), chances are there will not be any particular danger that will occur because the chemicals that might be inhaled when you breathe will not be many in number. The conditions are certainly different if you work in an ink making factory or in a printing press where exposure to chemicals in ink is higher.
You should not worry too much about the dangers posed by your ink as long as you use the pen correctly (don't drink the ink or scribble on your body). Make sure you buy a pen with a trusted brand to reduce the risk of dangerous content in the pen ink.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
