In the news today:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2501971/Metal-mobile-double-chance-stroke.html

Not sure how the average person would come into contact with tungsten metal used in electronic components inside a mobile phone, but they don't seem to have spotted its common use in carpers rig putty, which seems to me a much higher risk (if there is one). But then again, how would they ever separate this as a cause in a group who habitually gorge themselves on high-fat cooked breakfasts?!

Ed in the states 1 in 17 deaths are attributed to strokes, they reckon there is one every 40 seconds. and bear in mind they like to shoot and knife one another quite often over there one in 17 is a lot. The boffins however reckon its a pretty stable metal once produced ie dart players and anglers wont increase the amount inside them. it comes from the production process where some of it becomes aerosol or waterborne.
