Toxic Heavy Metal Catastrophe is a practical and exciting presentation on the dangers of heavy metals that we are all exposed to on a daily basis. Dr. Michael Wald, The BloodDetective, has studied heavy metals and their effects on human health for for over 30 years - and he is sharing what he knows in this podcast. How do heavy metals such as mercury, arsenic, lead, and cadmium affect one’s health? Where are these metals hiding in the environment? Our food, water, industrial sources, air, and medications may all be sources of toxic metals. How do you know if you have been exposed to heavy metals? What laboratory tests are best for detecting heavy metal poisoning? What are the medical and natural health solutions for the removal of metals including EDTA, DMPS, DMSA, n-acetyl cysteine, and lipoic acid to name a few? Heavy metals affect the body's pH balance, disrupt enzyme function, increase inflammation and oxidative stress, and may trigger many diseases. Breast cancer, liver and intestinal issues, and neurological symptoms can all be caused by long-term heavy metal exposure. Exactly how heavy metals affect various essential nutrients like zinc, iron, copper, selenium, manganese, chromium, molybdenum, glutathione and others will be reviewed by Dr. Wald.

Dr. Michael wald Welcome to Ask The Blooddetective, A WEEKLY PODCAST MEANT TO TAKE YOU BEYOND THE BASICS SO THAT YOU CAN BECOME YOUR OWN BLOOD AND HEALTH DETECTIVE


By understanding the risks associated with heavy metals, we can take steps to minimize our exposure and protect ourselves from their harmful effects. This knowledge can not only save our lives but also improve our overall health and well-being. In fact, studies have shown that reducing exposure to heavy metals can lead to improved cognitive function, better immune system function, and a lower risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes.
So, why should we take heavy metals seriously as a health threat? The answer is simple: because they can cause irreversible damage to our bodies and minds if we don't take precautions. By learning more about toxic metals and their sources, we can make informed decisions about our health and wellness, and potentially increase our lifespan.
WHAT ARE THEY AND WHERE DO THEY COME FROM =====================================================================================
"Heavy metals like lead, mercury, and arsenic are present in many everyday products and can have serious negative effects on our health. These toxic substances can be found in everything from paint and plumbing to cosmetics and food. Exposure to heavy metals has been linked to a range of health problems, including brain damage, kidney damage, and cancer.
To reduce your exposure to heavy metals and protect your health, it's important to be aware of their presence in your environment and take steps to minimize your contact with them. This can include using non-toxic alternatives to products containing heavy metals, properly disposing of items that contain heavy metals, and avoiding certain types of fish and seafood that may be high in mercury.
If you suspect that you have been exposed to heavy metals, it's important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. A healthcare professional can perform tests to determine the level of heavy metals in your body and recommend appropriate treatment.

Heavy metals are a group of toxic substances that can accumulate in the body and cause a range of adverse health effects. Some common examples of heavy metals include mercury, aluminum, cadmium, lead, and arsenic. These metals can enter the body through various sources such as contaminated food, water, air, and consumer products.
Healthy Metals Essential for Human Health: Their Roles, Necessity, and Benefits
The human body requires certain metals to function properly, and their deficiency can lead to various health issues. Here are some of the healthy metals that are essential for human health, their roles, necessity, and benefits:
1. Iron: Iron is essential for the production of hemoglobin, which carries oxygen throughout the body. It also plays a crucial role in the synthesis of myoglobin, an enzyme that helps muscles store oxygen. Iron deficiency can cause anemia, fatigue, weakness, and impaired cognitive function. 2. Zinc: Zinc is involved in numerous bodily processes, including wound healing, immune system function, protein synthesis, and hormone regulation. It also supports growth and development during childhood and adolescence. Zinc deficiency can lead to impaired immune function, slowed growth and development, and increased risk of infections. 3. Copper: Copper is essential for the production of red blood cells and maintaining healthy connective tissue. It also plays a role in the synthesis of neurotransmitters and the maintenance of a healthy immune system. Copper deficiency can cause anemia, weakened immune function, and impaired growth and development. 4. Selenium: Selenium is an antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. It also plays a role in thyroid function and immune system function. Selenium deficiency can increase the risk of cancer, heart disease, and other health problems. 5. Manganese: Manganese is essential for bone health, wound healing, and metabolism. It also plays a role in the synthesis of neurotransmitters and the regulation of blood sugar levels. Manganese deficiency can cause impaired growth and development, weakened immune function, and skeletal disorders. 6. Chromium: Chromium is involved in the regulation of blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity. It also plays a role in the metabolism of fats and proteins. Chromium deficiency can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes and other metabolic disorders. 7. Molybdenum: Molybdenum is essential for the proper functioning of enzymes involved in metabolism and the detoxification of harmful substances in the body. It also plays a role in the regulation of blood sugar levels and the maintenance of healthy skin and hair. Molybdenum deficiency can cause impaired growth and development, weakened immune function, and liver dysfunction.
Incorporating these healthy metals into your diet through food sources such as lean meats, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds can help ensure optimal health and prevent various diseases. Deficiencies in these metals can be addressed through supplementation under the guidance of a healthcare professional.
