Toxic metals


Toxic metals are lead, cadmium, mercury, aluminum, nickel and arsenic are widely found in environment. Humans are exposed to these metals from numerous sources, including contaminated air, soil, water, and food. Mainly these toxic metals can cause diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other brain and neurological disorders, Kidney disease etc. transition metals act as catalysts in the oxidative reactions of biological macromolecules therefore the toxicities associated with these metals might be due to oxidative tissue damage. Redox-active metals, such as iron, copper and chromium, undergo redox cycling whereas redox-inactive metals, such as lead, cadmium, mercury and others deplete cells' major antioxidants, particularly thiol-containing antioxidants and enzymes. Toxic metals can bioaccumulation in the body and in the food chain. chronic nature of toxic metals particularly notable with radioactive heavy metals such as radium, which imitates calcium to the point of being incorporated into human bone, although similar health implications are found in lead or mercury poisoning. The exceptions to this are barium and aluminum, which can be removed efficiently by the kidneys. Toxic metal exposure can be Acute toxic metal exposure such as Sudden, severe cramping and/or convulsions, Nausea, Vomiting, Difficulty breathing, Headache etc and Chronic toxic metal exposure such as Fatigue, Aching joints, Depression, Digestive distress, and reduced ability to properly assimilate and utilize fats, Impaired blood sugar regulation and Female reproductive problems such as menstrual difficulties, infertility, miscarriage, pre-eclampsia, pregnancy-induced hypertension and premature birth. To reduce the exposure to toxic metals healthy diet, plays a important role. For eg
• Lead is replaced by Calcium, which deposits primarily in bone, and disrupts the formation of red blood cells. Lead contributes to poor bone health like osteoporosis.
• Nickel is replaced by Manganese, nickel is carcinogenic and cause serious health problem.
• Cadmium is replaced by Zinc which tends to accumulate heavily in your kidneys. Cadmium overload is associated with peripheral neuropathy.
• Aluminum is replaced by Magnesium, which, among other things, induces neurochemical changes and has been identified as a contributing factor to developing Alzheimer’s.

OMICS Group International is a conflation of OMICS Group publishes 400 Open Access journals and International Science & Management conferences and events. Established in 2007 by Dr.Srinubabu with the only purpose making the research on Sciences and technology ‘Open Access’. OMICS Group publishes 400 online open access scholarly journals in all aspects of Science, Engineering, Management and Technology journals. Research Scholars, Students, Libraries, Educational Institutions, Research centers and the industry are main stakeholders that benefitted greatly from this knowledge dissemination. OMICS Group also organizes 300 International conferences annually across the globe. OMICS International organizes International workshops and symposiums, Science Congress, World Summits across the globe where the knowledge exchange among Scientists, Research Scholars, Students, Institutions and Industries. The scientific sessions 'Young Scientist Awards and Poster Competition at OMICS Scientific Conferences offers a platform to the budding scientists and researchers to showcase their novel research. OMICS Group also provides a dynamic platform for companies to exhibit, launch and showcase their unique strengths, products and services.
