Perhaps a Myth?
May 9, 2001

Today I noticed when I removed my wedding rings that I have a black ring around where they sit. I think I recall at one time someone mentioning this could be related to a lack of iron -- is this true? P.S. Been married for 6 years and the rings have been removed daily since the beginning so I know it's not the gold causing the problem!

Response from Dr. Frascino

Yep, it's a myth! Next question!
