Description

Health Consequences of Toxic Exposure

Evidence suggests that chronic toxic element exposure can adversely affect:

  • Energy levels
  • Reproductive function
  • Cancer risk
  • Neurological development and function
  • Respiratory, cardiac, hepatic, and immune functions
  • Cognitive and emotional health
  • Degenerative conditions

Toxins and Sources of Exposure

Accumulations of these toxins can occur in the human body in response to occupational exposures or to environmental exposures from toxic release in air, soil, or industrial waste systems. These sources include:

  • Metal refining
  • Alloying
  • Plating and parts manufacturing in aerospace and machine tool industries
  • Fabrication of nuclear reactor fuel assemblies
  • Electronics and computer manufacturing

According to the EPA, the US has the largest electronics (including computer) workforce in the world. Exposures to the measured elements can occur in other occupations as well, including:

  • Welding and metal shaping
  • Plumbing
  • Oil refining
  • Military or police service (with weapons use)
  • Handling of disposal of wastes
  • Manufacturing of pigments and coatings
  • Petrochemical production

The toxic element clearance profile assesses urinary excretion of toxic elements acquired through either chronic or acute exposure. The toxic exposure test enables practitioners to effectively monitor the progress of detoxification regimens and nutrient element status during treatment.
