What is heavy metal poisoning?
Heavy metal poisoning is the accumulation of heavy metals, in high toxic amounts, in the body. Symptoms associated with heavy metal poisoning vary according to the person and metal accumulated. Many of the heavy metals, such as zinc, iron and manganese, are important to body function in small amounts. However, if these metals accumulate in the body in higher than needed concentrations adequate to cause poisoning, serious damage may occur to the individual. The heavy metals most commonly associated with heavy metal toxicity, or heavy metal poisoning, of humans are arsenic, lead, mercury and cadmium. Exposure to heavy metals that can lead to heavy metal poisoning may occur as a result of industrial exposure, air or water pollution, foods, medicines, improperly coated food containers, imported furniture, toys or lead-based paints.
