I saw your response to the "excellent article on chelation". Apparently, somebody misreported the facts surrounding the death of a child with autism and wanted to make it sound like chelation was the culprit when it was, in fact, a drug error. Here was the article you posted: http://autism.com/ari/editorials/ed_chelationstory.htm I am doing chelation for heavy metals. It is quite difficult after the first 2 weeks and I am having some additional tests done to see if we can find out why it isn't so easy for me and hopefully, that will help us be able to make dietary and supplement adjustments to ease the path. I'm not using any drugs to do it, just herbs (spinach, mulberry and beet), enzymes, MSM and minerals. As far as I can tell, if you have over a certain level of heavy metals, you have to chelate them out because the body has deposited them throughout the body and is unable to remove them by itself. The medical profession seems to only be interested in them if they are at a high enough level to cause immediate problems that they can identify, not chronic type problems. I don't know enough about EDTA but since it's used by the medical profession I can only assume it has serious side effects and that they are much safer and more effective options but since they aren't FDA approved (which means the doctor and/or drug can kill you legally) they won't be considered. A medical doctor would be the one to use EDTA since it's a prescription medication so you know it can't be all that great. I came across an interesting website's article the other day. It was a skeptic website and they claim to be skeptics about everything, but they are quoting medical studies and seem to be assuming that they are right on about everything because they are based on "science". Even though it's biased science, and they are supposed to be skeptics, they are buying into everything the medical profession tells them. It was very telling about the hold the drug industry has on everybody. I don't think most people are capable of sorting it out for themselves, they have no real incentive to. oops, gotta go, my massage guy is here!
