Tungsten is a unique transition metal owing to its high melting point, conductivity, strength and flexibility. These traits make it an indispensible part of modern life involved in everything from household goods, such as light bulbs and golf clubs, to technologically advanced materials. Until recently, tungsten was considered as a relatively inert metal; however, several investigations suggest that tungsten may have carcinogenic properties. Tungsten exposure has been linked to several leukemia… CONTINUE READING
