Heavy metals

Heavy metals are individual metals and metal compounds that adversely affect human health. It consists harmful effects of cadmium, mercury and lead, iron, arsenic Commonly encountered heavy metals are chromium, cobalt, nickel, copper, zinc, selenium, silver etc. Heavy metal poisoning may occur as a result of industrial exposure, air or water pollution, foods, medicines, improperly coated food containers, or the ingestion of lead-based. Their industrial, domestic, agricultural, medical, and technological applications have led to wide distribution in the environment, and raising adverse effects on human health and the environment. . Their toxicity depends upon dose, route of exposure, and chemical species, as well as the age, gender, genetics, and nutritional status of exposed individuals. Because of their high degree of toxicity, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, and mercury rank among the priority metals that are of public health significance. These metallic elements are considered systemic toxicants that are known to induce multiple organ damage, even at lower levels of exposure. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency and the International Agency for Research on Cancer they are classified as human carcinogens (known or probable). The metals may enter the body by:
• Ingestion.
• Inhalation.
• Absorption through the skin or mucous membranes.
The heavy metals once absorbed compete with other ions and bind to proteins, leading to impaired enzymatic activity resulting in damage to many organs throughout the body. They are then stored in the soft tissues of the body. Heavy metal's toxicity, lead can affect the gastrointestinal system, nervous system, kidneys, cardiovascular system, blood production, and reproductive system. Symptoms of heavy metal toxicity include, headaches, short-term memory loss, mental confusion, pain in muscles and joints, gastrointestinal upsets, food intolerances/allergies, vision problems, chronic fatigue, and others. The symptoms are so vague that it is difficult to diagnose based on symptoms alone.
