    Many of us may suffer from heavy metal toxicity, these substances have many ways to cause significant damage to the body including mitos membrane disfunction, inducing autoimmunity, inflammatory cytokines, lipid peroxidation, excitotoxicity, free radical formation, reducing cellular glutathione levels, DNA damage, inhibiting glucose transport, enzyme function, blocking/inhibiting methylation pathways etc.

    Mercury is the most toxic of them and many of us have mouth full of „silver“ amalgam fillings so if one have genetic mutation of genes such as APO E, MTHFR, GTSM, then it is HUGE problem for body to get that metals out.

    I have read literally hundreds of stories of patients where heavy metals, especially mercury and lead were at the root of their illness so I encourage you to get tested and avoid particularly those nasty mercury fillings.

    Few interesting papers:
