DANGERS OF TOXIC METALS
Dr. Lawrence Wilson
Toxic metals comprise a group of minerals
that have no known function in the body and in fact are harmful.
Today mankind is exposed to the highest levels of these metals in
recorded history, thanks to their industrial use and burning of coal,
petroleum and incineration of waste material. They affect everyone
and are a major cause of illness, aging and even genetic defects.
The study of toxic metals is part of
nutrition and toxicology, areas not emphasized in medical schools.
For this reason, these important causes of disease are accorded little
attention in conventional mainstream medicine. This article focuses on
the extent of toxic metal problems ≠ sources of toxic metals, symptoms
and how to remove them.
Minerals are the building blocks of our bodies. They are
required for body structure, fluid balance, protein structures and to
produce hormones. They are a key for the health of every body system
and function. They act as co-factors, catalysts or inhibitors of all
enzymes in the body. Copper and iron, for example, along with other
minerals are required for the electron transport system, and thus needed
for all cellular energy production.
Minerals are classified into four groups: The macrominerals, or those needed in large quantity, include calcium,
magnesium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, sulfur, iron, copper and
zinc. Required trace minerals include manganese, chromium,
selenium, boron, bromine, silicon, iodine, vanadium, lithium,
molybdenum, cobalt, germanium and others. Possibly required trace
minerals include fluorine, arsenic, rubidium, tin, niobium,
strontium, gold, silver and nickel. Toxic metals include
beryllium, mercury, lead, cadmium, aluminum, antimony, bismuth, barium,
uranium and others.
These categories overlap slightly because assessing minerals
that are required by humans is problematic. Some may be needed in
minuscule amounts. Clinical studies to prove this by depriving people
of vital minerals would be cruel and possibly disastrous.
Also, note that minerals needed in lesser quantities are usually toxic
in greater amounts. Examples are copper, iron, manganese, selenium and
vanadium. Even calcium and sodium are quite toxic in excess.
Today mankind is exposed to the highest levels in recorded
history of lead, mercury, arsenic, aluminum, copper, tin, antimony,
bromine, bismuth and vanadium. Levels are up to several thousand times
higher than in primitive man. In my clinical experience, everyone has
excessive amounts of some or all of the toxic metals.
Toxic metals are also persistent and cumulative. The late Dr. Henry
Schroeder, MD, who was a world authority on trace elements, wrote:
≥Most organic substances are degradable by natural processes.
(However), no metal is degradableäthey are here to stay for a long time≤
Toxic metals replace nutrient minerals in enzyme binding
sites. When this occurs, the metals inhibit, overstimulate or otherwise
alter thousands of enzymes. An affected enzyme may operate at 5% of
normal activity. This may contribute to many health conditions. Toxic
metals may also replace other substances in other tissue structures.
These tissues, such as the arteries, joints, bones and muscles, are
weakened by the replacement process. Toxic metals may also simply
deposit in many sites, causing local irritation and other toxic
effects. They may also support development of fungal, bacterial and
viral infections that are difficult or impossible to eradicate until
this cause is removed.
The mineral replacement process often involves the idea of preferred minerals. For example, the body prefers zinc for over 50
critical enzymes . However, if zinc becomes deficient - and our soil
and food are very low in zinc today - or exposure to cadmium, lead or
mercury is sufficiently high, the body will use these in place of zinc.
Cadmium, in particular, is located just below zinc in the periodic table
of the elements, so its atomic structure is very similar to that of
zinc. It almost fits perfectly in the zinc binding sites of critical
enzymes such as RNA transferase, carboxypeptidase, alcohol dehydrogenase
and many others or great importance in the body.
The ability to replace a vital mineral means, however, that
toxic metals are not completely harmful. Indeed, they can extend life.
They keep bodies functioning when vital minerals are deficient.
An analogy is to imagine taking an automobile journey. If one
is far away from a repair shop when a key part like the fan belt breaks,
if one had a spare piece of rope, one could tie it around the pulleys
and continue the trip slowly. The rope would not function nearly as
well as the original part, but would allow one to keep going. This is
how toxic metals can function positively in the body. Many people limp
along on grossly deficient diets, and are even born deficient and
toxic. They do not realize their fatigue and other symptoms are due to
the presence of incorrect ≥replacement parts≤ in their biological engine
compartments. Depending on where toxic metals accumulate, the resulting
effects may be given names such as hypothyroidism, diabetes or cancer.
The benefits of using Detoxamin are
More affordable. Detoxamin
is 70% less than IV EDTA chelation. Every three Detoxamin is
medically equal to approximately one IV EDTA chelation treatment.
More convenient. No more
traveling to your doctor's office for the treatment. Simply take
one Detoxamin right before bedtime and the EDTA slowly absorbs into
your body while you sleep. Waking up to better health is a
introduces 750mg of EDTA slowly into the bloodstream and soft
tissues, exactly where you need it the most. The dosage does not
put the biological burden on the liver and kidneys like IV EDTA
chelation does, making it much easier on the body to drain the
Better EDTA assimilation. Detoxamin introduces less EDTA more frequently, rather than a higher
dose less frequently. This provides better EDTA assimilation into
the body. This aspect of Detoxamin is what excites doctors the most
about the product, as IV chelation puts an unwanted strain on the
Medically equivalent to IV EDTA
chelation. This is another huge aspect of why Detoxamin is
so popular throughout the world. People for years have been
frustrated with the inconvenient delivery of EDTA into the body. Now
that this method is available, most people prefer it and in most
cases the results are even better than with the IV method. For
every three Detoxamin, you receive about the same dosage you would
get in one IV treatment, but with a much safer and more convenient

How Does Artery Disease Affect
Blockage of blood
vessels by plaque (atheroma) reduces the flow of blood, starving vital
organs of oxygen and other nutrients. Cell walls then become leaky,
allowing excessive calcium, sodium and other elements to entehen
calcium accumulates to a critical point, deposits form, like concrete.
These calcifications can often be seen on X-ray. Disordered
calcium metabolism can also cause coronaries and other arteries to go into
spasm, further reducing blood to vital organs.
Can They Be Avoided?
evaluation reveals the formation of calcified deposits, if they are in
uneven clumps, the risk of
heart attack or stroke is considerable. If
they are laid smoothly along the arterial walls, the risk is much less.
What Is The Effect Of These Deposits?
When the flow of blood
is interrupted by a calcified deposit it becomes turbulent and under
pressure. If part of the deposit breaks away, it is carried at speed in
this fast moving blood and may block one of the smaller blood vessels
supplied to the artery completely or partially. This causes a stroke if
the artery is feeding the brain, or a
heart attack if a coronary artery
of the heart muscle is involved, or gangrene and amputation if the leg
arteries become blocked.
