COPPER

Number 29 on the "periodic table" of elements

Tests the presence of ions of Copper to a high degree of accuracy to detect contamination in the body and on a wide range of materials in your environment


Sources
Copper and its compounds are widely distributed in nature, and this element is found frequently in surface water and in some groundwater.

Copper is found in many foods, particularly vegetarian proteins such as nuts, beans, seeds and grains. Meats contain copper, but it is balanced by zinc which competes for its absorption. Chocolate is high in copper. A desire for copper may help explain chocolate cravings.

Another source of copper is drinking water that remained in copper water pipes, or copper added to your water supply. During a recent dry summer, several Oregon cities added copper sulfate to their reservoirs to reduce algae growth. Accident and disease rates increased.

Other sources of copper are copper cookware, dental materials, vitamin pills, fungicides and pesticides residues on food, copper intra-uterine devices and birth control pills. Mrs. Robinson and her 6-month-old, breast-fed baby both began to experience hair loss. The cause was a daily prenatal vitamin containing 4 milligrams of copper, far too much for this high-copper mother.

Copper is an essential and beneficial element in human metabolism and is generally considered to be non-toxic except at high doses.

Copper contributes to corrosion of aluminum and zinc and also imparts an undesirable bitter taste to water. Staining of laundry and plumbing fixtures occurs at copper concentrations above 1.0 mg/L or 1 ppm

The aesthetic objective for copper in drinking water is set at a maximum of 1.0 mg/L. or 1 ppm

Stress from any cause contributes to copper imbalance. Stress depletes the adrenal glands and lowers the zinc level in the body. Whenever zinc becomes deficient, copper tends to accumulate. Our soil is low in zinc. Refined sugar, white rice and white flour have been stripped of their zinc. The trend toward vegetarianism reduces zinc in the diet, since red meat is the best dietary source of zinc.
