The Heavy Metal Hazard
Some metals are naturally found in the body and are essential to human health.
Iron, for example, prevents anemia, and zinc is a cofactor in over 100 enzyme
reactions. They normally occur at low concentrations and are known as trace
metals. In high doses, they may be toxic to the body or produce deficiencies in
other trace metals; for example, high levels of zinc can result in a deficiency
of copper, another metal required by the body.
The Effects of Heavy Metal
Studies confirm that heavy metals can directly influence behavior by impairing
mental and neurological function, influencing neurotransmitter production and
utilization, and altering numerous metabolic body processes.
How can we protect ourselves
from heavy metals?
Logic dictates that, once the potential harm from heavy metals is understood,
their production and use should be phased out and toxic storage heavily
regulated. As is obvious from the list of exposure sources above, logic is not
the guiding principle here, except in the case of lead, the use of which has
Research on EDTA Chelation
There are over 3,000 research studies, papers and articles supporting the
efficacy of EDTA Chelation Therapy over the past 50 years. Fifteen are
