Fake-nail glue should be banned

3rd January 2008

Labour MP Phyllis Starkey has said a damaging artificial glue should be banned from use in beauty salons.

The glue, methyl methacrylate (MMA), is inexpensive but can cause skin irritation or damage to the nail itself. The substance is banned in the US.

Ms Starkey said: "This issue is of great importance to women in my constituency and throughout the country, and it would be helpful to have a debate about its public health aspects as soon as possible."
