Canon just released a statement saying the front rubber grips of some Canon EOS 650D DSLR cameras may cause an allergic reaction. The grips could also turn white after a short period of time, which combined with the possibility of allergies, is, uh, sort of a problem since you hold the thing to take pictures.
I’ve heard of people making claims about “electromagnetic allergies”, but so far, no one has been able to prove that this is an actual, physical ailment. Still, Santa Fe resident Arthur Firstenberg was forced into homelessness by his neighbour’s gadgets.
You want to know what snake oil smells like? Take a whiff of the Lifemax Sneezer beam. Oh wait—you can’t because your nose is stuffed up. Well, I suggest taking some Allegra because I hardly think cramming two light beam rods up your nose that use “dual-wavelength phototherapy” will do much to relieve congestion, runny nose, watery eyes and headaches. Even if you are desperate and willing to try anything, the manufacturer claims that it takes three applications at three minutes a pop over the course of a month to generate improvement. Sounds like a waste of $US60 if you ask me. [Expertverdict via TRFJ via Ubergizmo]
A British Association of Dermatologists’ study showed that the levels of nickel found in mobile phones can cause dermatological problems for many mobile phone users. As many as 33% of people are at least slightly allergic to nickel, and nearly half of the 22 phones tested had levels that could affect those poor souls. Luckily, the allergy causes friendly, non-fatal dermatitis: itchy skin and a mild rash, easily healed with a topical steroid cream. I feel like mobile phones get a bad rap, since even jewellery can cause the same reaction, so here’s an encouraging list of diseases you definitely won’t get from your phone.
Are your allergies so severe that a Claritin has no effect? The Japanese have a solution, and it involves shoving round pieces of plastic up your nose to block out allergens. It may seem unorthodox, but as the lady at the clinic keeps telling me, prevention is much more effective than cures. We’ll stick to pills, thanks. [Impress via DVICE]
I have allergies. It’s not horrible, but a couple times a month I’ll have to take something for it. Therefore, you’d think this completely allergy free Ford Mondeo would be fantastic for me. Sadly for Ford, my allergies aren’t bad enough to make me drive a Mondeo.
For those of you who do suffer horribly, this car has no nickel and chrome in the cockpit, is constructed from low-emission adhesives, and only uses allergen-tested textiles and leathers. It also has a pollen filter to filter out sneeze-inducers from the air coming in. Still, Mondeo. – Jason Chen
