Mad as a Hatter
How to Avoid Toxic Metals and
Clear Them from the Body

What’s wrong when people follow Dr. Weston A.
Price’s dietary principles but still suffer from significant
health problems? Why do so many people
try to eat good fats but find they cannot digest them? What is
the reason for digestive distress and dysbiosis despite taking
high-quality probiotics and consuming cultured foods and
broth? Why are some babies sickly even when the parents eat
a nourishing diet prior to conception and throughout pregnancy
and lactation?
The answer may be toxic metals. Though we may honor our bodily temples
with nourishing foods, we cannot realize our full health potential so long as we
remain waste dumps for mercury, aluminum, cadmium, arsenic, lead and nickel.
Even the “precious metals” gold, silver and platinum can create problems. Mix
well with a dose of chloride and fluoride found abundantly in municipal water
supplies and it’s no wonder that so many of us are sick and tired.
Health practitioners over the past few decades have also begun seeing more
and people “glowing in the dark” because of nuclear waste and weapons. The
use of so-called “depleted uranium” weapons in armed conflicts is suspected of
contributing to the “Gulf War Syndrome,” an array of health problems associated
with the Gulf War as well as the ongoing Iraqi war and other conflicts.

about B-12
High homocysteine levels are markers of cardiovascular problems,
cancer and other diseases of industrial societies, and also of poor and premature
aging. They are associated with arterial plaque, neoplasia, tumors
and a long list of metabolic imbalances.20-22 Homocysteine levels are higher
in most vegetarians because of inadequate dietary protein and B vitamins
(especially B12) in general or excess soy in particular.23-26 Soy is marketed
as a “perfect protein” because it contains all the essential amino acids, but
“contains all” is not the same as contains optimum—and usable—levels
and ratios. In terms of helping the body to handle metal poisoning, soy
is an especially inferior protein because its cysteine content is tied up in
and largely made unavailable by protease inhibitors.
27,28
Thirty percent of elderly persons (both
male and female) have elevated homocysteine
levels. Twenty nine percent of vegetarians have
elevated homocysteine levels (caused by the relative
lack of methionine and vitamin B12 in their
diets and/or excess soy consumption) compared
to just five percent of omnivores. Among symptomatic
atherosclerosis patients 13 to 47 percent
(possibly more) have elevated homocysteine
levels.29 Although supplemental B6, B12 and folic
acid are an inexpensive, often-lifesaving way to lower homocysteine levels, highly toxic people sometimes become deathly
ill from them, most probably because the absorption of B vitamins triggers
this metabolic homocysteine pathway and results in a massive release of
associated metal toxins into the bloodstream.30
