Toxic metals

We are constantly exposed to toxic metals and the symptoms produced from long-term, slow accumulation of them in the body are many and varied.  Symptoms may not appear until later in life.  They affect many biochemical processes and disrupt metabolism.  Mercury, cadmium, lead and arsenic are known to be particularly insidious.
