Toxic Heavy Metal Exposure
My own interest in toxic heavy metals and detoxification began in 1990 when I began doing hair analysis on all of the patients in my practice of neurology and psychiatry. I was amazed to find that every person who worked with his hands had heavy metal poisoning; painters, plumbers, electricians, welders, machinists, jewelers, metal workers, computer technicians, etc. Dentists were severely affected due to working with mercury as were their dental assistants and office staff. At least 80% of my patients with chronic illness had high levels of toxic metals in their hair analysis.
