What constitutes a heavy metal?
The definition of the term ‘heavy metal’ is somewhat vague. Some definitions rely on atomic weight, others on specific gravity, some definitions include actinides, – and others do not. In recent times the phrase ‘heavy metal has become associated with those metals thought to be toxic to humans and/or the environment.
Heavy metal toxicity is an unusual diagnosis and not always recognised or even suspected by medical professionals – the exceptions to this would include iron toxicity resulting from accidental or deliberate ingestion or exposure to lead.
However, left untreated, heavy metal exposure can lead to serious, life threatening complications. It is essential that suspected heavy metal toxicity is recognised and treated appropriately in order to avoid these complications.
