Facts About Heavy Metal Toxicity?
Heavy metal toxicity is thought to affect over 1 million individuals including children.
Populations at greater risk of heavy metal toxicity include developing fetuses, children, and the immunocompromised, as well as individuals with impaired liver function and reduced antioxidant activity.
Heavy metals are present in all regions of the United States, and can accumulate in air, soil, and drinking or groundwater sources in and around concentrated sources of heavy metals from industrial production or pollution.
Some professions and hobbies are at greater risk of heavy metal toxicity, including fuel, munitions, painting, rubber manufacturing, industrial smelting, mining, photographic processing, agriculture, semiconductors, welding, and waste or radioactive waste disposal sites.
The World Health Organization (WHO) considers 13 heavy metals of significance to human and environmental health: arsenic, cadmium, cobalt, chromium, copper, mercury, manganese, nickel, lead, tin, and titanium, however there are other metals and metalloids that may be significant causes of health problems in humans.
