Heavy Metal Toxicity and the Unborn Child

HEAVY metals
METALS -- Toxicology
FETAL tissues

The article reflects on heavy metal toxicity, its harmful effects on the growing fetus and its detoxification. A heavy metal is defined as any metallic chemical element that has a high density and is poisonous at a lower concentration. Heavy metals are especially toxic to a growing fetus. Unfortunately, heavy metals are not filtered by the placenta from mother to child and are directly deposited in growing fetal tissues. One of the main problems with heavy metals is their ability to bio-accumulate. Thimerosal is a preservative in many childhood vaccines that is 49.5 percent ethyl mercury by weight. All women planning to have children need to detoxify before conception. In detoxification of heavy metals firstly, the source of toxicity must be identified and removed. Secondly, the organs of excretion including: liver, kidneys, and lungs must be "opened" for detoxification.
