    英国科学家表示,纹身墨水中的毒素被身体吸收后可能会致癌。他们认为,纹身墨水中的纳米颗粒进入血管后会聚集在脾脏和肾脏,从而影响身体的排毒功能。   Toxins1 from tattoo2 ink could be absorbed into the body and cause cancer, scientists have revealed.   Experts believe ink nanoparticles could enter the bloodstream and accumulate in the spleen(脾脏) and kidneys, harming the body's ability to filter impurities3.   Studies have found that some ink used in the UK contains known carcinogens(致癌物) and scientists want more regulation of the dyes used by the industry.   Public Health England says that some inks contain substances such as cobalt(钴) and mercury.   Scientists want similar regulations on tattoo dyes that have been introduced on the smoking and sunbathing4 industries.   Desmond Tobin, director of Bradford University's centre for skin sciences, told The Sunday Times that he was shocked to discover there was no regulation on inks.   He said: 'We need to do more work, but there is no question that these substances can be toxic5.'   About 20 percent of British adults have a tattoo and last month Public Health England published new guidance on the industry.   It said: 'Some inks are sold with little or no acnetpanying product data, and their netposition may remain uncertain even at the point of use.'   The report found that red colours have been found to contain mercury, while greens and blues6 have been found to contain cobalt.   A study by Jorgen Serup, Copenhagen's university hospital's professor of dermatology, found carcinogenic chemicals in 13 of 21 netmonly used European tattoo inks.   He told paper: 'Millions of Europeans are now being tattooed7 with chemical substances of unknown origin.'   Professor Serup wants people to be given written information about the risks of tattoos8 and wants further research into the potential dangers.   Two years ago the U.S. Food and Drug Administration launched an investigation10 after research found inks contained potentially dangerous substances including metals and hyrocarbons that are known carcinogens.   One chemical netmonly used to make black tattoo ink called benzo(a)pyrene is known to be a potent9 carcinogen that causes skin cancer in animal tests.
