Heavy Metals & Our Life

Heavy metals and the brain

Mercury is considered the most toxic heavy metal in the environment. Exposure to elevated levels of metallic, organic and inorganic mercury can damage the brain, kidneys and the developing fetus. The nervous system is very sensitive to all types of mercury. Increased exposure of mercury can alter brain functions and lead to shyness, tremors, memory problems, irritability, and changes in vision or hearing. Exposure to metallic mercury vapors at higher levels for shorter periods of time can lead to lung damage, vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, skin rashes, increased heart rate or blood pressure. Symptoms of organic mercury poisoning include depression, memory problems, tremors, fatigue, headache, hair loss, etc.

Lead:  Human activities such as mining, manufacturing and fossil fuel burning has resulted in the accumulation of lead and its compounds in the environment, including air, water and soil. The main sources of lead exposure are lead based paints, gasoline, cosmetics, toys, household dust, contaminated soil, industrial emissions. Lead poisoning was considered to be a classic disease and the signs that were seen in children and adults were mainly pertaining to the central nervous system and the gastrointestinal tract. Lead poisoning can also occur from drinking water. The pipes that carry the water may be made of lead and its compounds which can contaminate the water. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), lead is considered a carcinogen. Lead has major effects on different parts of the body. Acute exposure can cause loss of appetite, headache, hypertension, abdominal pain, renal dysfunction, fatigue, sleeplessness, arthritis, hallucinations and vertigo.Chronic exposure of lead can result in mental retardation, birth defects, psychosis, autism, allergies, dyslexia, weight loss, hyperactivity, paralysis, muscular weakness, brain damage, kidney damage and may even cause death.

Aluminum:  Recent investigations on environmental toxicology revealed that aluminium may present a major threat for humans, animals and plants in causing many diseases. Many factors, including pH of water and organic matter content, greatly influence the toxicity of aluminium. With decreasing pH its toxicity increases. The mobilization of toxic aluminium ions, resulting from changes in the pH of soil and water caused by acid rains and increasing acidification of the surrounding atmosphere, has an adverse effect on the environment. This is manifested by the drying of forests, plant poisoning, crop decline or failure, death of aquatic animals, and also by various imbalances in the function of human and animal systems.

Chromium:  Pollution of the environment by chromium, particularly hexavalent chromium, has been the greatest concern in recent years. Tanneries discharge numerous polluting heavy metals and compounds into the water streams. The presence of excess of chromium beyond the permissible limit is destructive to plants since it severely affects the biological factors of the plant and enters the food chain on consumption of these plant materials. Chromium toxicity causes chlorosis and necrosis in plants. Hexavalent chromium Cr(VI), is more active in penetrating the cell membrane through passages for isoelectric and isostructural anions. Ultimately leads to oxidative stress in the cell causing damage to DNA and proteins.

Cadmium distributed in the environment will remain in soils and sediments for several decades. Plants gradually take up these metals which get accumulated in them and concentrate along the food chain, reaching ultimately the human body.

Geoengineering (HAARP) have been spraying overhead many toxins, many poisons. Not only does this affect the life of all sentient beings, it affects the health of the entire planet.
