Toxins: Heavy Metals and Your Home
Toxins are a constantly reoccurring topic on DiseaseProof. Not all that surprising, considering the increasingly synthetic world we live in. But as HealthDay News reports, sometimes dangerous heavy metals can lurk in not-so obvious places. Robert Preidt explains:
Potential household sources of lead include: old painted surfaces; tableware such as leaded crystal, pewter and some glazed pottery; fumes when soldering stained glass projects; and pottery glazes with white or yellow finishes. Dietary supplements, especially those from China, can also be a source of lead exposure. And some jewelry from China may be made from lead.Like I said, this is an all-too-familiar issue for DiseaseProof. Take a look at these earlier posts and you’ll see what I mean:
Certain kinds of fish or shellfish may contain high levels of mercury, including shark, swordfish, tuna, pike, walleye, bass, and Atlantic salmon. While concerns have been raised about mercury in dental fillings, no firm link has been established between metal dental fillings and changes in the central nervous system, the article said.
