Number 48 on the "periodic table" of elements
Tests the presence of ions of Cadmium to a high degree of accuracy to
detect contamination in the body and on a wide range of materials in your environment
The late expert in trace and toxic elements, Henry Schroeder, M.D., described in detail cadmium's involvement in generating, or at
least contributing to, high blood pressure. Cadmium concentrates in the kidney can cause kidney tissue damage and hypertension,
as well as an increased incidence of calcium kidney stones. Some patients with high blood pressure show elevated urine cadmium levels.
The cadmium effect may also contribute to heart diseases as well. In rat studies, higher levels of cadmium are associated with an
increase in heart size, higher blood pressure, progressive atherosclerosis, and reduced kidney function. Cadmium toxicity is worsened
with zinc deficiency but it may be reduced with higher zinc intake.
Cadmium appears to depress some immune functions, mainly by reducing host resistance to bacteria and viruses. It may increase cancer
risk, possibly for the lungs and prostate. Cadmium toxicity has been implicated in generating prostate enlargement, possibly by interfering
with zinc support.
Cadmium also affects the bones. It has been known to cause bone and joint aches and pains. This syndrome, first described in Japan, where it
was termed the itai-itai ("ouch-ouch") disease, was caused by cadmium pollution there. It was also associated with weak bones that led to
deformities, especially of the spine, or to more easily broken bones. This disease was fatal in many cases.
An increase in incidence of emphysema and anemia may be due to cadmium exposure. These cadmium toxicity problems, including its immunosuppressant
actions and its role in cancer, hypertension, and heart and kidney disease, need to be substantiated by more research.
