In the interest of keeping welders safe and healthy when welding or brazing galvanized steel, please see the American Welding Society (AWS) Safety and Health Sheet for Metal Fume Fever, specifically zinc oxide

Is there any problem in spot welding galvanized sheet metal? I do some, and never thought of it being a problem.

If you are allergic to is sure it would be. Then it becomes how allergic you would be. A slight reaction or a major reaction. The same as any other allergy.

It slays me to hear the lead poison warnings from paint. You know if it was as bad as some want you to think everyone over the age of 40 would have lead poison as all paints had lead at one time. Every painted house inside and out was painted with lead paint.

My Mom is almost 97 living alone and if she dies in the next twenty years I will have to sue the paint people because of lead in the paint.

The facts are that you can not put all people in the same category because all people are not made from or with the same stuff.

Some people are allergic to alcohol but you will not hear the same crys for the banning of beer and whiskey. I would guess that many more get sick from beer and die than galvanize.

Key words are (acute allergic condition)

Some are allergic to many things and some none.
With all governments safety regulations they tend to want everyone to think that every one is allergic to everything. How ever take peanuts.

They are more quickly deadly if you are allergic.

This isn't an alergic reaction as such tho... it's a mild poisioning. It is a rather acute reaction tho.

So over the years that I have been exposed and had no sign of any reactions means what?

I don't say not to worry about or not to be careful and to ignore any funny feelings when welding or anything else you are doing.

A flat warning that everyone is gonna die if, is over the line. In I got sick so eveyone else is.
Just doesn't fly over this bird.

It means that you're less sensitive to that particular poisoning... It doesn't mean that it's not building up in you system or that it's not causing you harm... just that it hasn't hit you yet. If you've heard of the LD50 rating of chemicals... you know that it's the dose that will kill 50% of the test population when exposed. You're just among the other 50% but there is a dose for you too...
