What are heavy metals and why are they so harmful?
Mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium, cobalt, tin, nickel... are some of the most common heavy metals, just to name a few. Heavy metals accumulate in the body, building up in fat cells, bones, glands, and hair, and ultimately potentially leading to some dangerous symptoms and potential diseases.
Heavy metals are everywhere—in amalgam fillings, fish, exhaust, aluminum cans, pesticides and other forms of environmental pollution—yet their proliferation is relatively new. We were not designed to process such high levels of heavy metals.
At the same time, the body is forced to do something that protects our vital organs from them. So what does it do? You guessed it—fat storage. Actually, trapping heavy metals in our fat cells helps save our central nervous system, along with potential damage to blood composition, lungs, kidneys, liver, and other vital organs.
