How Lead Affects The Body

How Lead Affects The Body

Blood - inhibits enzymes needed for hemoglobin synthesis. = Fatigue.

Bones - lead is deposited into bone vs calcium.= Osteoporosis

Brain - Lead inhibits copper-dependent enzymes for the neurotransmitters (dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine). = Hyperactivity.   High Pb levels may cause irreversible injury to the central nervous system. 

Energy - inhibits enzymes in the Krebs / Energy cycle. = Fatigue.

Kidneys - Raises uric acid levels / impair kidney function. = Gout.

Minerals - Displaces calcium, zinc, manganese, copper, and iron.

Thyroid Gland - Interferes with iodine uptake to the thyroid.

How Mercury Affects The Body

Nervous System - Degeneration of peripheral nerve fibers. Sensory and motor nerve damage.

Pain in limbs, weakness, falling, slurred speech, tremor, headaches and rash.

Memory Loss, loss of cognition

Endocrine System - Concentrates in thyroid / pituitary glands, impairing their function & impairment of adrenals.

Energy - Inhibits the enzyme ATPase, impairing energy production in all cells.
