Allergen Warning

Since many of the people I know are highly allergic to substances you put on skin, I thought I'd pass this along. From Snopes.com, a warning about getting henna tattoos. Follow this link .

It's not natural Henna that's the problem. That's safe. It's adulterated "black" or "blue" henna, which is often mixed up not following FDA regulations and can cause a severe allergic reaction that produces a lifetime hyper-sensitivity to many substances, including antibiotics and analgesics (no epidurals for women with this sensitivity!).

Just an FYI, and verified by Snopes--for once an internet/email-lore that is legit!
