  • What are Heavy Metals

    Heavy metals have nothing to do with Rock and Roll music or bands – they are non-essential toxic metals that damage your health. Examples of these include aluminium, arsenic, antimony, cadmium, lead, mercury, nickel, thallium, uranium, polonium and others. Heavy metals are associated with many health problems – one of the main ways that they cause problems is by producing free radicals – nasty molecules in the body that damage cells, tissues and organs, as well as provoking the cell to mutate,…

  • Poisoning our Children

    The World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) biomonitoring survey in 2003 demonstrated that irrespective of where we live or what we do, we are all contaminated with a cocktail of toxic man-made chemicals. Some of these chemicals can adversely affect the brain and the peripheral nervous system. The most well-known are the ubiquitous pollutants, now banned, such as PCBs and DDT. Unfortunately, the chemical industry does not seem to have learned its lesson: there are many other man-made chemicals still being…

  • Mercury - Multipotent cytotoxins

    Mercury is a multipotent cytotoxin that intervenes in the primary processes of the cell by bonding strongly with sulfhydryl and selenohydryl groups on albumen molecules in cell membranes, receptors and intracellular signal links, and by modifying the tertiary structure. The structure of albumen molecules is genetically determined, and this leaves ample scope for genetic polymorphism to manifest itself in varying sensitivity and types of reaction to mercury exposure. Mercury…

  • Mercury: The Global Disaster

    Scientists around the world have shown how low levels of mercury toxicity is directly related to illnesses like cancer, heart disease and a host of neurological problems like Alzheimer’s, MS, ALS, autism spectrum disorders. It could also be playing an important role in the rapid increases we are seeing in diabetes - mercury attacks sulphur bonds in both insulin and insulin receptor sites. One only has to do a preliminary search of the literature and find 358 papers exemplifying the relationship…

  • Killing Ourselves with Xenobiotics

    Toxic chemicals, otherwise known as “xenobiotics” (Gk: foreign to life) which are scattered all over our planet from the North Pole to the South Pole, are being constantly researched, and the conclusion is that they are extremely toxic to humans as well as wildlife. Even though some chemicals have been taken off the market, those that remain are even more noxious than the ones already banned. Bioaccumulation in soils, water supplies and the tissues of animals and humans is a real problem…
