What is Heavy Metal Accumulation?
Sources of heavy metals range from environmental, occupational,
household (including foods, water, paints, cosmetics,
etc), medical and hobbies.
Elemental forms of heavy metals are not well absorbed, but
organometalic forms are lipophilic and can readily pass through
membranes and even cross the blood-brain barrier. Their
absorption is facilitated by metallothionein protein ligands.
Once absorbed into the body, heavy metals have a wide
distribution in various organs, glands and the central nervous
system. Some metals are bone seekers and ultimately settle into
the teeth and skeletal system.
Heavy metals then can effectively poison enzyme systems,
increase free radical production and displace or compete with
essential elements that make up metalo-enzyme complexes
and compete with the absorption of nutritional minerals.
