    Hey everyone,

    I'm just curious as to whether or not long term exposure to toner or carrier dusts would cause issues if one had to have an MRI scan done. I know welders get their eyes checked for metal fragments and the like, but I'm wondering if there's any danger to having fine metallic powder in your lungs. Anyone had any experience with this?

    no experience. but i do wonder the same. It cant be good. but no worse than other industry. and I wonder this about paper dust and other things involved with print...
