known as 'Phossy Jaw'.

TRUTH !!
Those afflicted with phossy jaw developed an eerie glow in affected bones,
which, in severe cases could be seen through the skin in darkness. Before
you go on a phosphorus eating binge to try and start a new fad, you should
know common symptoms included extreme pain, swollen gums, and a foul
smelling discharge, not to mention facial disfigurement. As the initial
symptoms intensified, brain damage set in and the jaw bone had to be
removed, or a painful death followed via failure of multiple organs. White
phosphorus was banned from the matchmaking industry starting in the early
20th century. Much safer handling techniques have since been put into play
for those working with elemental phosphorus.
