Heavy Metals Testing
Toxic metals, including “heavy metals,” are individual metals or metal compounds that negatively affect people’s health by exposure over time and become a significant health hazard.
Heavy metals are pollutants that can enter the water system through groundwater. Arsenic, cadmium and lead are just a few of the heavy metals in the environment. Heavy metal pollution can be caused by any manufacturing process especially pesticide and fertilizer production.
Heavy metals may enter the human body through food, water, air, or absorption through the skin after contact.
Symptoms of heavy metals exposure may include:
- Digestive problems
- Skin problems
- Muscle tremors
- Vitamin and mineral deficiencies
- Loss of memory
