My Heavy Metals Tests
Doctor's Data Fecal Metals
2005 test report
2007 test report
Lab comments on high Cadmium
  • I don't have any of the usual sources of cadmium exposure:
    • tobacco smoke
    • battery manufacture
  • I suspect a set of temporary dentures I wore for five years -- toward the end, mainly at night. I had noticed that the pink color was leaching out and getting paler. Cadmium can be used in the pink pigment to make the part supposed to look like gum tissue. When I learned this I stopped wearing the dentures (just after the 2005 test). Immediately the headaches I was waking up with diminished 90%.
Doctor's Data Hair Elements
2007 test report

    More information:

    • Hair Analysis on the site
    • On Uranium detox:
    • on chelation with EDTA
      (ethylenediaminetetracetic acid)
      from Dr. Zoltan Rona's Top 10 Ways to Detoxify: Part 3:
      • "standard treatment for heavy metal poisoning for more than 50 years."
      • It works on lead, aluminum, uranium, and arsenic
      • Does not clear most other toxins
      • Can also bind on to essential minerals like calcium.
      • Can produce kidney toxicity, which must be monitored regularly.
