(NaturalHealth365) Toxic heavy metals – generally defined as a group of dense compounds with adverse health effects – are found virtually everywhere: in food, water, soil and even within the air we breathe. So prevalent are these unwanted substances that researchers tell us that we all carry a certain amount of these metals in our bodies – depending on age, health and exposure. So if you’re dealing with any serious health issue … considering a heavy metal detoxification program may be a wise choice.
(NaturalHealth365) As most people can easily understand, children are particularly vulnerable to harmful substances in the environment. And, lead – a highly toxic heavy metal and neurotoxin – is a serious threat to children in every single country of the world.
In fact, according to a recent report from UNICEF and Pure Earth, 800 million children have dangerously high lead levels in their blood. Or, as our article title suggests (today), every third child in the world has too much lead in their body.
Garlic is used the world over as a culinary spice, but recent research indicates that among its 100+ medicinal properties it is far safer and more effective than a commonly used chelation drug in pulling lead out of the human body.
A remarkable study published in the journal Basic & Clinical Pharmacology & Toxicology revealed something very special aboutgarlic: it is a natural detoxifier of lead and is not only as effective as a common chelation drug known as d-penicillamine at pulling this metal out of the body but is also much safer.
