Explanation:
I don't think that English speaks of "human body" in such a sentence, rather of "humans" or "human health".

Without health risks


Explanation:
This is a very good way in English to indicate that you will not be causing injury on the human body. "Health risk" is a phrase, which is very commonly used and would fit well with this sentance. Good luck!
