Sources of Heavy Metal in Your Home Environment
Heavy metal toxins can be causal factors in literally any health problem and because heavy metals cannot be degraded or destroyed they tend to bioaccumulate.
Bioaccumulation means an increase in the concentration of a chemical in the body over time, compared to the chemical’s concentration in the environment. They are immediately absorbed and due to their high toxic potential are quickly and deeply stored away in tissues such as the brain, liver, kidneys and bones to prevent immediate harm as they are not easily broken down, metabolized or excreted by the body.
