Manganese is a metal used in a variety of industrial products, notably in welding equipment and supplies. When a welder is working, fumes are released that contain manganese vapors. This vapor is considered hazardous and exposure to higher levels of the vapor, even for a short time, may cause a significant injuries.
When inhaled in too high a concentration, manganese causes a neurological condition known as manganism. This condition is symptomatically similar to Parkinson's disease, causing tremors and eventual paralysis, but is distinguished by the fact that it is caused only by manganese poisoning.
