Doctor's Note

There is so much more mercury in fish compared to other foods that it can be used as a biomarker for fish consumption--see Hair Testing for Mercury. How much mercury exposure is there from fish as compared to amalgam fillings and vaccinations? See Amalgam Fillings vs. Canned Tuna and Mercury in Vaccinations vs. Tuna. Fish aren't the only source of toxic heavy metals, though. Mercury has been found in both high fructose corn syrup-containing products (see Mercury in Corn Syrup?) and Ayervedic dietary supplements (Get the Lead Out). There are also videos on aluminum in cheese, arsenic in chicken, and a thousand other nutrition subjects.

    I think it is likely that many, many people have mercury poisoning and don’t realize it. When I started losing my hair about six years ago, I went to an integrative medical doctor who, among other things, tested me for heavy metal poisoning. I thought the test was unnecessary, but I went along with it. When the test came back, a score of nine in the mercury category was considered toxic. My score was 39! Mercury poisoning can cause hair loss, dry skin and mental confusion among other things.
