    Rich mentioned a lab to me about a year ago, but I can't find his reply. I believe the lab was able to identify known and unknown elements in the urine with mass spectrometry or something like that.

    I wish I could find his reply. I don't think it was a typical lab if I can remember right.

    What are the best labs for testing for this kind of thing? Not just heavy metals. But chemicals and all sorts of things.

    I am also interested in this. I found a lab that does metals urine testing (UEE? from Great Plains Lab) like Yasko requests but it seems to involve chelation (purging?) and I have read a couple of places that is not good for us, can cause more symps. Not sure if important to do a metals test before and after chelation. Just cant fathom causing myslf more issues right now. So I would like to know what is a good, reputable test for metals that also provides interpretive info.
