Dimitri Mendeleev is often cited as being the 'father' of the periodic table.Do you remember the days in science class when you studied the elements? Back then you probably weren’t worried about the presence of heavy metals and metalloids in your body.
There was a time when mercury was considered a cure, well, until it killed you. Aluminum was used to make cooking utensils and is still used in some deodorants, yet it is considered to have a link to Alzheimer’s disease. Lead was used for everything from crystal glass, ammunition and in car batteries, and if you were lagging behind, you may have been told to get the lead out. And cadmium was the component used in making rods for nuclear reactors.
As for arsenic, there is abundance in the Earth's crust and in the atmosphere: a part of it is coming from such places as volcanoes, the rest is man-made. Arsenic-based pesticides are found in some foods – since it is naturally occurring in water and soil – and this is how this metalloid has become pervasive in our diets and our bodies. A new study from Dartmouth University concludes that foods containing arsenic could be the main way you’re exposed to this harmful metalloid. For instance, in regular sprout eaters (with a diet including Brussel sprouts, kale, broccoli and cauliflower) the level of arsenic was 10.4% higher than in people who never ate sprouts or ate them less than once a month. These foods are seen as healthy selections, but even the organically sourced ones cannot assure, that they are free from arsenic, which can be also found in dark-meat fish (tuna, mackerel, salmon, sardines, bluefish or swordfish) and rice – a staple in many cultures. Those eating half a cup per day had consistently high arsenic levels. Also chicken and poultry are regularly given food containing arsenic-based drugs, and even beer and wine has a higher level of arsenic (men who had 2.5 beers per day had 30% higher arsenic levels than non-consumers), mainly originating from the water.
Did you ever think back then that metals and metalloids would find their way into the human body to cause deadly diseases? Heavy metals are more abundant than ever imagined; they are used in agriculture, medical industry, cosmetics and within the chemical industry. The isolated elements were one thing but the bioaccumulations of toxins from environmental pollution are now in our water, air and soil and with that a part of our everyday life.
Research scientists believe that heavy metals are systemic and affecting us all: both the young and the not so young. They cause havoc with our health, ranging from leaky gut syndrome, neurologic disorders (such as mental illness to chronic fatigue), cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, blood disorders, developmental abnormalities and cancer.Heavy metals are found in our drinking water and in the soil – causing a globalchallenge in our food supply.
I recall seeing massive protests of our youth in the US over gun control.Don’t get me wrong, I agree with their cause, but if they only knew that environmental pollution is a different kind of weapon. We should be arm in arm in the streets,with affecting babies linking to autism.Meanwhile the FDAis collecting data instead of controlling the amount of heavy metals used in agriculture.
Now that we have the information, we really can do better.Especially since there is mounting evidence suggesting that chelation therapy can help remove toxic heavy metals from the body.For added convenience to interveinal administered EDTA chelation, there is the oral form from Life Choice calledCLAW – OCHMB 180V’s.
