  • Heavy Metals in Oysters

    Heavy Metals in Oysters Heavy metals in oysters such as high arsenic levels have been found in the Brunswick and New Hanover counties - these are among the highest in the country. According to a recent study by researchers at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, two professors and four undergraduate students at UNCW are taking a closer look at what is accumulating in oyster tissues as they filter our estuaries. The research is the first of its kind to establish a baseline of two organic...

  • Heavy Metals in Parrot Fish

    Heavy Metals in Parrot Fish Despite the benefits of seafood's consumption, the bioaccumulation of heavy metals in Parrot fish can endanger consumers' health. This study analyzed lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), Arsenic (As), and Cadmium (Cd) concentrations in fillet and gill of parrotfish (Scarus ghobban) using flame atomic adsorption spectroscopy (FAAS). The potential non-carcinogenic and carcinogenic health risks due to consumption of Scarus ghobban fillet were assessed by estimating average target...

  • Monastero RN1,2, Vacchi-Suzzi C3,4, Marsit C5, Demple B6,7, Meliker JR8,9. Abstract There is growing evidence of immunotoxicity related to exposure to toxic trace metals, and an examination of gene expression patterns in peripheral blood samples may provide insights into the potential development of these outcomes. This pilot study aimed to correlate the blood levels of three heavy metals (mercury, cadmium, and lead) with differences […]

    Expression of Genes Involved in Stress, Toxicity, Inflammation, and Autoimmunity in Relation to Cadmium, Mercury, and Lead in Human Blood: A Pilot Study

    Monastero RN1,2, Vacchi-Suzzi C3,4, Marsit C5, Demple B6,7, Meliker JR8,9. Abstract There is growing evidence of immunotoxicity related to exposure to toxic trace metals, and an examination of gene expression patterns in peripheral blood samples may provide insights into the potential development of these outcomes. This pilot study aimed to correlate the blood levels of three heavy metals (mercury, cadmium, and lead) with differences in gene expression in 24 participants from the Long...

  • Heavy Metals in Wild Berries

    Heavy Metals in Wild Berries Fruits and vegetables are considered a beneficial contribution to the human diet. Especially, berries contain a great deal of bioactive compounds, such as anthocyanins, organic acids, tannins, phenols, and antioxidants. However research has found heavy metals in wild berries in Croatia. Apart from organic substances, inorganic nutrients are also present in fruits. Some metals and metalloids are essential for humans, whilst others may exhibit harmful effects. Wild...

  • Impact of prenatal arsenic exposure on chronic adult diseases

    Young JL1, Cai L2, States JC1. Abstract Exposure to environmental stressors during susceptible windows of development can result in negative health outcomes later in life, a concept known as the Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD). There is a growing body of evidence that exposures to metals early in life (in utero and postnatal) increase the risk of developing adult diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and diabetes. Of particular...

  • Heavy Metal Detox

    Heavy Metal Detox The world is getting more and more toxic! Toxic foods, water, wars, chemtrails, cosmetics, pesticides and more - it would be true to say that we are ALL toxic to some degree! We are exposed to more than 85,000 toxins and very few of these have been tested for safety. Heavy metal detox is therefore something that should be part of our lifestyles - for us and all the family. Metal toxicity can cause a wide array of symptoms, such as: Sweating Headache Difficulty...

  • Toxic Heavy Metals

    Toxic Heavy Metals Are We All Toxic? The most common question that is asked of us from our customers is "Am I Toxic?" It is actually quite easy to answer these days, because there has been a lot of research into the subject of toxins and their effect on our health over the past few years. When we began distributing HMD™ almost ten years ago, we also sold a heavy metal test kit for testing some of the most common heavy metals, including mercury and lead. We asked for feedback from customers...
