    Chapter 1:  How Heavy Metals are absorbed
              Once upon a time, there was "U-TOO" who ate all sorts of foods, having no limitations besides what tasted good.  This opinion opened a wide variaty of food choices; it also lead to improper food preparations and cooking methods.  U-TOO did not realize that they began to let (absorb) HEAVY METALS.

    Chapter 2:  What did/does Heavy Metals do?
              As soon as HEAVY METALS entered the stomach, it had a hard time being digested.  The body did not have the nutritional strength to breakdown HEAVY METALS.  So, Heavy Metals went into the blood steam and flowed throughout the body to cause havoc.  One place it went was in the brain.  Dropping off some Aluminum (from foods cooked and stored in Aluminum), it helped to toxify the brain and "U-TOO" became very forgetful, less focused, not-as "sharp," having less ambition, amoung other things.  HEAVY METALS also went on to block other organs, causing disease and degeneration.  So them, "U-TOO" decided to try conventional medications to help their symptoms, but they did not know it was HEAVY METALS advancing the decline of health.

    Toxins and Allergins
          Did you know that Toxins can span to nasal (and other) passages causing
          allergic reations?   
    (see, Allergies)

    Daily Environmental Toxicity

    Heavy Metals are the oldest toxins known to humans.  Exposure to aluminum, lead, mercury, cadmium, and manganese cause serious poor health by negatively interacting with biological systems.  We are also exposed to environmental toxins from gases, fumes, and even plastics every day.  Some of these toxins are introduced daily in the air, food, and water intake. 

    "Adult test studies showed a 43% absorbtion of toxic, Heavy Metals when 91 chemicals were found out of the 210 chemicals analyzed (There are over 8,000 chemicals that are used daily within the United States)."

    Toxins and Heavy Metals (which is one form of toxin), cause debilitaing problems in the body from fatigue, depression, abnormal weight, allergies, arthritis, auto-immune disease, and even chronic neurological diseases, and some cancers.  Many signs of toxicity from Heavy Metals can be misrepresented as inevitable signs of aging.

    Below is a list of common environmental and Heavy Metal toxins, including where they are found and their harmful effects.  You may be surprised to find where some of these toxins are located (near you):

    A well-known poison, is also classified as a known human carcinogen (causing cancer) by the EPA.  It can cross the placenta and accumulate in the body.  Arsenic enters the water supply from smelting of many ores, such as copper and iron, and through its use as a wood preservative.  Three hundred thousand people in the U.S. may be drinking water containing higher than the EPA's maximum allowable limit of 50 parts per billion of arsenic.  High levels of intake can lead to abnormal fetal development and cardiovascular disease.   AND EVEN MORE ISSUES. . .

    Like lead, can be leached out of pipes, especially by soft, acidic water.  Used for electroplating, in paint and pigments, and in the manufacture of PVC as well as nickel-cadmium batteries, cadmium enters the water supply from leaking landfills and fertilizer runoff (where it is a trace contaminant).  Intake of cadmium, which accumulates in the body over time, is associated with hypertension and kidney damage.   AND EVEN MORE ISSUES. . .

    CHLORINE and its by-products

    Chlorine, an effective and currently necessary disinfectant, is added to all water supplies at treatment facilities to neutralize bacteria.  Unfortunately, chlorine, reacting with organic chemicals left in the water by soil and decaying vegetation, also forms a group of chemicals called disinfection by-products (DBPs) or trihalomethanes (THMs).  DBPs/THMs may be associated with 10,000 or more rectal and bladder cancers each year in the U.S., and are linked to pancreatic cancer as well.  These chemicals may also cause major birth defects.   AND EVEN MORE ISSUES. . .

    Is naturally occurring in some waters, and is also added to water supplies to fight tooth decay.  Too much fluoride can cause mottling of teeth.  Since fluoride is removed from the body by the kidneys, people with kidney disease who drink lots of water with fluoride can accumulate fluoride in their bones producing skeletal fluorosis, which can eventually have a crippling effect.  There is some suggestion that fluoride is correlated with increased rates of cancer, though the evidence is not clear.  Local drinking water programs are required to announce to the public when the fluoride level reaches more than 2 ppm; at this level the possibility of moderate to severe dental mottling increases.  There is much debate over whether the risks of fluoridation outweigh its benefits.   AND EVEN MORE ISSUES. . .

    According to the EPA, more than 800 U.S. cities have water that exceeds the EPA's "action level" for lead.  Over half of U.S. cities still use lead-lined pipes or copper pipes with lead soldering, which are the primary sources of lead in drinking water.  Even at low intake levels, lead can cause fetal damage and delayed neurological and physical development in children, and high blood pressure, heart attacks, kidney damage, reproductive dysfunction and strokes in adults.   AND EVEN MORE ISSUES. . .

    Include asbestos from cement water mains; cyanide from insecticides, metal refining, and pigment and plastic manufacture; and nitrates.  Water contaminated with nitrates from nitrogen fertilizers is most common in farming areas, and can enter municipal watersheds through farm runoff.  Infants who drink nitrate-tainted water can contract "blue-baby syndrome."   AND EVEN MORE ISSUES. . .

    Thanks RNA    


    Including naturally occurring or manmade radionuclides like uranium, radium, radon and strontium (all carcinogenic), may be contaminating the drinking water of 50 million Americans.   AND EVEN MORE ISSUES. . .

    Thanks RNA    


    These are man-made chemicals that contain carbon.  SOCs in some drinking water include pesticides like atrazine and alachlor (both suspected carcinogens), notorious industrial chemicals like dioxins and PCBs, and plastic-related chemicals such as phthalates and styrene.  A 1995 study by the Environmental Working Group in Washington, D.C. found that approximately 10.2 million people in the Midwest, 1.5 million in Louisiana and 2.4 million in the Chesapeake Bay region drink water contaminated with weed killers; as a result, EWG concludes, 3.5 million people face cancer risks 10 to 100 times higher than the federal benchmark.   AND EVEN MORE ISSUES. . .

    Thanks RNA    


    Are a special class of synthetic organic chemicals which include solvents like benzene, carbon tetrachloride, trichloroethylene, p-dichlorobenzene, and the building block of PVC plastic, vinyl chloride.  Many VOCs are known or suspected carcinogens and can also affect the nervous system.  VOCs evaporate readily, and thus can be inhaled while you shower.   AND EVEN MORE ISSUES. . .

    Chapter 3:  Who Dares Challenge HEAVY METALS?
              bY tHe TIMx HEAVY METALS wAS D-0Ne, eVERytHIN~g WAs iN dIsArRaY!

    "U-TOO" knew something had to be done, so they contacted "One-wnhealth" to see how-to get rid of HEAVY METALS.  Now, "One-wnhealth" knew exactly what to do, and "U-TOO" decided to do everything "One-wnhealth" suggested.  By the time they were complete, the "two" of them (One's-wnhealth's wisdom  &  U-TOO's ability, they) became an unstoppable force and kicked out HEAVY METALS!

    If you "U-TOO" have eaten bad in the past, you may have HEAVY METALS, unknowingly in your body.  Working with "One-wnhealth" can help you rid HEAVY METALS and other Toxins so you can live life in

    Optimal Health!
