Why use disposable needles?

What happens if you re-use acupuncture needles ?

In 1996, we commissioned the École des Mines d'Albi, a well-known technical university, to study the point of a needle after use.
Here are the results :

First session

With a new needle, the point is sharp. Insertion is easy for the practitioner and almost painless for the patient.
  Photo enlargement: 1000X
Taken with (SEM) Scanning Electron Microscope
of the Ecole des Mines d'Albi for Marco Polo Direct.
Second session

The needle has been used once before, then stored in a "protective" tube. The point is dulled, insertion difficult, and more painful for the patient.
