Lecture Highlights:

  • Lab reference ranges of toxic metals are irrelevant when assessing damage due to oxidant stress
  • Provocation urine testing is actually irrelevant for assessing body burden or acute exposure for all metals except lead
  • Blood lead levels currently considered safe in adults are now known to be associated with significantly increased risk for all-cause mortality, cardiovascular disease mortality, and ischaemic heart disease mortality
